Tortoises are still enjoy some sun

I spent a couple of hours outside this morning doing this. I noticed that two of the tortoises were enjoying a little sunshine and I thought I would capture the moment!
Above is Tom and Tog and below is Topsy who for some reason stayed in the house!

Topy obviously had other things to do!
Life as a tortoise isn't all "coming out the house and sunbathing" you know. :o)
Your pots are all sorted there Chris, my dad did the same yesterday. He has no garden but a back yard full of planters. (That includes, buckets, dishes, Salad trays from old fridges...)
We are rejoicing a little at the news that Mike Ashley has put Newcastle United up for sale. Good news for the team and fans. :o)

How fun to see your tortoises enjoying the sun. Reminds me of two large desert tortoises I used to have … before I moved so close to the ocean in a place with a very small yard. They did have interesting and unique ‘personalities’ and I miss them occasionally even now … decades later.
Hugs and blessings,

That's so fascinating, I've never seen turtles/tortoises in person so this will probably be as close as I ever come to one. So cool you have them as pets. I didn't even know that was possible. I think I need to get out more.

I bet I could keep up with those pets.
Our cats are driving us batcatty.
(Still having problems with the stray -- and I'm about ready to G.E.T A. D.O.G!)

daffy well I don't have much back garden it's mainly paved. You probably didn't see the early fun mon video I did. Your dad sounds as though he does similar to us.

storyteller they do have personalities and often people find this hard to believe.

pamela you would probably find if you got a dog the cat would still be boss!! When we had a dog the neighbour's cat used to sit on the fence and taunt her.
