Today was a nice day and I decided to try Izzy in the updated enclosure. The water level went down a bit and I am wondering if I need to seal the cememt...I have to look into that now....it does need some "tweeking", but she seemed to love it.

I am keeping my computer hidden from them as I picture a long line of turtles and tortoises with sticks over their shoulders holding all their belongs as they run away from my skimpy living to your sumptuous yard...It's just beautiful and seeing her with her face under the water getting a drink is just beautiful...you really have done right by your animals...

My son kept pouring water on the cement and scrubbing it with a steel brush and flushing the water out with the pump. Then we let the water sit for two days. The first day it seeped out some, but not a lot because we have a liner underneath the cement. That's really all he did.
Candy...I have some hostas, a live forever (Orphine), strawberries, small rose of Sharon, dandelion, pansies, Irish moss and Scottish moss, clover, a little grape vine (Pio ate all the leaves so it hasn't climbed up the fence yet) creeping Jenny, sedum, portacula chicks and hens, begonia, and petunia. Portacula for some reason is supposed to be very healthy for tortoises. I love this site and always use it for my plants.
