    Good morning Oh most revered tortoise of my acquaintance! You have had a most exciting few days, hobnobbing with the doctor and advising on Richard's surgery which sounded very painful. I am glad you could be there and I am sure the doctor's little boy will be inspired by your gorgeous picture...

    He's beautiful Angie!! It's lovely how animals trust you, like this gorgeous toad and Zola. Funnily enough it's another thing we have in common!! A few years ago, we had a lot of tadpoles and reared dozens of little frogs and toads. We released lots into a countryside pond but kept a two toads...

Steve is really very interested and amused by Teztez but he doesn't like to give this away so he pretends to be indifferent and disapproving of my interest and affection for tortoises. he was horrified and very upset because i...

    Hello, yes you are right, they are forget me nots that grow wild all over our garden. That was just a random picture of Teztez that I put in. We call that sticky weed "lad's love" a funny evocative name! I'm afraid there are a lot of weeds in our garden but at least they come in useful for...

    in my cosy boudoir, my retainer has just served my morning soggies. It's grey and mizzling so I will remain in my private hut and look out at the garden. A pigeon was looking at my breakfast longingly.

    Beautiful! That sounds a perfect outing Zola! And you made new friends as well.. You are a brilliant ambassador. Teztez will be very interested. She really likes bluebells, we have a few clumps in our garden and she likes to surge onto them and go to sleep with her head wrapped up in the...

    Hello Angie, that's a gorgeous photo, makes me smile, thank you for sending it. It's funny how tortoises appetites change, they are so capricious and amusing. It's so kind of you to care about Pete and very comforting. It has hit the grandchildren quite hard as they were all fond of him...

    Hello dear Angie, and lovely Zola, thank you for your kind wishes, your visit to Barnstaple sounds very pretty. We have been fairly quiet, catching up with some work, the grandchildren were very sad to hear that poor Pete had been put to sleep. One of the little boys who loves soldiers...
