Tobey The Turtle


A stone sentry
presides over our garden.
Solid and immovable.
Impervious to the
whims of nature.
Patient while 
hibernating under snow.
Stoic in the face
of wind and rain.  
Warmed but not blistered
by the noon day sun.
Symbol of stability
in a world of change.


About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.
