|Leaf and Seed Pod|
|Biggest Liquid Amber at the RC|
Yesterday, closer to the mountains, my sister and I went out in her complex to collect leaves and seed pods, the latter are for crafting. Liquid Amber trees have round ball seed pods that hang from the branches like ornaments. The tiny goldfinch love them, as do other finches, but goldfinch are the only ones that can dangle on the seedpods while chiseling the seeds out of the pod with their beaks.
With this cold of an overnight temperature (though it warmed up later in the week with a new storm coming in) it meant the Big Tortoises had to go into their boxes in the garage on Monday. Torts usually dig down to a spot that is deep enough to keep them at an even 55°F. That depth is around five or six feet. See, they do know how to carry on their lives. The trouble is that it's solid rock about 2 feet down, and our little excavation master tanks can't GET down low enough. We have the La Mesa Agglomerate to thank for this having to box them up. The two remaining teeny babies will not be allowed to hibernate because they don't have enough bulk to survive.

See you tomorrow, unless I see you first. just kidding!
