Gerty and friends is inspired by Gerty the gopher tortoise who lives in my backyard. In fact I can see her now from my window. Lately she has been remodeling her front porch, technically called the burrow apron, so that she can get more sun. I’ve been working on a picture book about her and hope to get it published some day. The friends are a gopher frog and a gopher mouse.
LOVE THIS! Great idea…when you mentioned Gerties porch, I scratched my head. Now I get it!!

She’s been really busy lately! When I was watering some plants in the back and cleaning/filling the birdbath today, she came up behind me and wanted me to just sprinkle water around her in the grass. At first I thought she wanted to chase me but it was the hose that interested her.
Excuse me, Gerty!
