We have had a really warm and bright few days, here. Positively Mediterranean weather. This hot spell has coincided with our looking after Margaret’s parents’ two tortoises. The larger one (usually on the right) is “Tortie”, and is something over 75 years old; The smaller one is “Sam”, a mere 50-something. These reptiles are really enjoying their vacation in warm Ipswich, and they especially like eating our home-grown dandelions.
