I never get tired of checking out your habitat...yeah! Mother Nature does play her games...it's been in the 70s here the past few days, but today it's 90 and it's gonna climb back into the 100s before the weekend is done...again Terry...GREAT job!
There probably will be lots more warm sunny days, and Pio will be outside for a few hours on those days, but I won't take any more pictures .........I hate when the flowers die and things start turning brown....but I do love when the leaves start turing colors.
Beautiful pictures Terry. I also just love seeing your little guys enclosures. They are so wonderful. The weather is going to be about 80 today and then like Dean said it will be hotter over the weekend so Dale will be able to go out some more. I'm sure he will be happy about that.
Terry...I just LOVE your pictures. Then I have a flash back to the picture of your beautiful back yard under a foot or so of snow and I remember that I'm pretty happy where I am. I just wish my habitats looked even half and pretty and natural as yours do.
I can never get enough of your photos. You've made a paradise for those guys.
I personally live for Winter so you just have to take a few shots when NY gets hit with some fresh snow. I notice Evergreens in the background and nothing's prettier than when those are covered with it. It's nature's snowcone.
What a contrast in conditions! The photos are excellent at showing the drastic changes from the seasons.
For someone who has only seen snow once (when I was a little kid and we were on vacation) I can't even imagine what winter would be like where you live.
BTW....was that photo of that leaf taken, while it was falling?!
I don't like the shoveling, but I have kids to do that for me. But to me we have the best of both worlds....a beautiful few months of summer and flowers, and then some great fun in the snow...shopping for Christmas presents...with COATS on....looking at all the lights....I love winter too. We have a really big hill...the kids call it a mountain...that we can't wait for snow to ski, toboggan, or just roll down it in a garbage pail cover...fun! And when that's done, we have the anticipation of seeing the flowers come up, the grass turn green again, the leaves come back.....life in never boring, because we have changes to look forward to. I'm not knocking the warmer climate...not at all....just saying I love the changes we get here.
It stinks the weather isn't more compatible with the tortoises. My Russians, only saw outside for a little while, then it got SUPER hot here with an even higher index. It's just not cooling off enough for them to be outside again during the day, but within a month or so it'll be too cold.
