These last couple of days have been fine enough for my three tortoises to go into the garden during the warmest part of the day. They have enjoyed re-exploring old haunts……

..although there were some complaints about lack of plants!

Others, however, had no such problems.

There was some disagreement about the pecking order….

….but, after a couple of false starts….

…everything was in order.

And peace reigned while they all soaked up the sunshine, bless them!

Chumble is still the word, TT - suits them well!

Hi Donnah - I use Powerpoint - just insert picture into PP and then insert the shape. I expect other packages do the same thing as well. It's fun to do :)

Heloo Lujean - the tortoises are: Josie (largest) 80-100 years old, Jubilee (middle size) 40-50 and Little 'Un probably 10 or under. All the ages are geusstimates as it's really hard to tell their ages!

Glad you liked the blog - thanks.
