The Old Stone Tortoise

A multi-generational tale

The Old Stone Tortoise, photo by the author

Originally my mother bought the stone tortoise , placing it in the middle of an island of hostas.

As a young child I liked to sit beside it and considered it my friend.

It was brightly colored then. I think I remember shades of green and blue.
