Snapshots & Whatnot: Turtles! Turtles! Turtles!

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.”ย  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! ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿฆ‹

    Nice that you had time for some restful photos, Virginia — even nicer that you shared them with us!

      Thanks, Debbie. Taking that pic, didnโ€™t realize it would turn out like a painting – but the Japanese Garden @ Maymont Park is totally beautiful! (or should I rephrase โ€œturtle-lyโ€ beautiful!)๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿข๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿข๐Ÿƒ
