On this steamy July Friday, here’s a pic and turtle-ish inspiration to contemplate.
A meandering turtle (sticking his neck out) in the Japanese Garden pond @ Maymont Park in Richmond, VA. (As a Monet groupie, couldn’t believe how this photo turned out more like a painting!)
“Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.” James Bryant Conant
“Take a walk with a turtle. And behold the world in pause.” Bruce Feiler
grace, peace & inspirational turtles

I was just watching butterflies on a b-fly bush in our back yard … a quiet moment helps me quiet my thots too. Kay
Amen, Kay. I also enjoy the fluttering beauty of butterflies that often distracts my worries away (at least a moment or two!) Blessings! 🦋😎🦋
Loved the quotes, beautiful pictures..
Thanks, Carol-Jo! When the going gets tough, remember turtles have hard shells & take life one small step at a time…🐢 💜🐢💜🐢💜🐢
Very rare photos as well as inspiring quotes 🐢 🐢 🐢
Thanks, Cin – you know how much I love turtles & Monet! Love & hugs! 🐢🎨🐢🤗🍃🌷
Nice that you had time for some restful photos, Virginia — even nicer that you shared them with us!
Thanks, Debbie. Taking that pic, didn’t realize it would turn out like a painting – but the Japanese Garden @ Maymont Park is totally beautiful! (or should I rephrase “turtle-ly” beautiful!)🍃🐢😎🐢🍃
Cute 🐢 turtles☀️
