    Hi Heather,
    Levi looks great! He’s getting big and sounds like he has an attitude.
    Your business sounds like tons of fun!
    ❤️

    Thanks. It holds a succulent every spring to summer but I have to replace it each year. Succulents and OR winter don't work well together..lol

    We got down to 31 last night. First time its dropped below freezing in two years. Very unusual for us to not drop below freezing in winter.

    My mom, who is still back in SoCal, jokes that y'all had only 2 days of winter this year.

    I have no doubt that Levi misses the warmer weather of CA. (anthropomorphism aside)

    I'm such a terrible tortoise mom who forced him to move to Oregon instead. :rolleyes:

    Never count winter out until your into March, no matter which colder, snowy winter state you live in. It will get ya every time.
    Levi looks so big. Have you measured him lately?

    Oh we've had that too. But it's more a fluke then a sign your going to be stuck in winter weather for a while.

    @wellington Barb, Levi is due to be measured and weighed! I'll do that once spring is here, for real. LOL

    That was until this week. Now we have doubled that number and it looks like we are in for a full week of winter. Some of my hibiscus got burned by frost. Surprisingly, one of my African Hibiscus survived the "winter". It is producing new leaves and did not get burned by frost that we have had the past couple of nights.
