Turtles and Poinsettias

BM are going back to China suddenly to take care of some minor health issues and other affairs. They will be gone for two and half months and I am just not sure how I am going to get used to them not being here to dote on us. We are entrusted with taking care of all of B's creatures that he has collected.

There are the fish to be cleaned and fed.

Then there is "gui gui" the turtle who presents me with a moral dilemma. i have a strong compulsion to set him free back to his natural habitat frolicking in the streams and catching juicy jumping bugs and meeting other spotted turtle friends for a swim. On the other hand he is B's adored pet and i would be quite lax in my responsibilities if i were party to an escape.

i will enjoy caring for the plants however. B has quite a garden that he has cultivated from abandoned pot plants he has discovered and from harvesting the seeds of some chilli peppers he particularly liked. His plants thrive so readily that he has to keep spreading them out over several pots.
