Out of hibernation
 
I got a surprise this morning, one of my female iberas was up and slowly about. I knew they were moving under the soil, as I could see the cracks in the soil. But normally when this happens it takes at least a week to a fortnight for them to come up. And the others are more advanced in movement:0)
So maybe Spring has arrived, or they are in for a shock if the temps drop again:0(

She probably knows it going to be warm next week.

I've been checking for signs of mine as it's been warm for a few days now but no show yet. It's to be 10c for about the next 10 days too.

Thank goodness spring is in the air, huh? My pond is awake, the ants are constructing new homes in my driveway, the flies are out and I do believe I saw a mosquito!! Ah, Spring!!

I had one appear yesterday, March 16th which was the same day as last year and the other one appeared today 17th March. First one went down on September 14th and resurfaced on 1st Oct then they both went down on 3rd October until now.
