Turtledom before:

Turtledom in progress:

Did you have to uproot so many hostas, Humans?

This used to make for a nice hunting blind…er…bird watching spot.

Turtledom after:

I appreciate the juxtaposition of the rocks and the diggable substrate.

The vegetation is quite nice and, if I understand correctly, edible.

My private pool, though, needs a cleaning and the proffered lettuce is not up to my standards.

3.5 stars, at best.

P.S. We servants…er…Humans covered Turtledom with a strong plastic mesh to prevent any unwanted incursions into the Princess’s territory.  Human Daddy is hard at work on a latching chicken wire top.
