From Carol Spears, Chapter Rep

Look who showed up at 1:30 today—a baby gopher tortoise. My neighbor to the east came over and range my doorbell to tell me there was a something cool between our yards. If you visited Carol on the Landscape Tour you probably got a look at where this little guy calls home.
