For me the sign of Spring that works the best comes after the first warm overnight rain of the season. The next morning, as soon as the sun warms up the leaves a bit, our pet turtles start appearing after their nap of five months or so.

A female Three-toed Box Turtle.


Eastern Box Turtle. Males of all types can usually be told by the red eye.

Where we live used to be part of Lake Michigan when it was larger. Our soil is extremely fine sand, excpet the turtle pen is more like woods soil due to many years of leaves being thrown in and turning into mulch. They just go down into the ground a ways, and I throw more leaves on every winter after they are gone. Not exactly mud, but close enough after the heavy rain of last night.

Thanks all for looking and commenting.
