Well it’s still chilly but has not snowed for a few days which makes it finally feel like spring has arrived here in St Helens. My Crocuses are out and thoughts are turning to gardens and planting and animals being able to spend time outdoors. Talking of gardens...we were at the Easter garden event in church square St Helens recently. Great to meet everyone! I have actually been planting a few seeds (indoors) for the time being but some of them will be planted out eventually. I am not really green fingered at all but I do try! And the animals appreciate my efforts. We have pansies, livingstone daisies and snap dragons for the outdoor tortoise enclosure and we always grow nasturtiums because we have lots of animals that like to eat those. They are nice in our salads too!. We buy special tortoise weedseed mix and encourage the dandelions to grow ^__^

I think the true green fingers, or should I say toes, belong to our iguanas. Annie has very long green toes! She is back in the big enclosure with Kato, full time now, where they both seem very healthy and happy together. Which is a great result!

Reef has continued to work hard on upgrading the animals vivariums and we are working on adding more live plants to their enclosures too. Another thing that Reef and myself are working on at the moment is getting ourselves a bit fitter......... we have foolishly decided to attempt the Tough Mudder this year, along with a group of friends. So look out for TEAM REEF’S REPTILES! For those of you who have never heard of the tough mudder. . .it is a 12 mile long, grueling, muddy assault cause with obstacles that include icy water, fire and electric shocks!!!! Yikes! Check out our Facebook page for more details on that.
