Our slow worm has grown

A month ago I did a post about the baby slow worms in the garden. They were really tiny, about the size of worms. Yesterday I saw a much bigger one sunning itself on the plant that is next to the fence that I showed in my last post. I think they may be from the same batch but has grown so much since we last saw them.

It’s tail is in the crack in the concrete next to the fence. It’s sunning itself on the comfy bed of our plant. I feel sure this will be one of the babies we saw last month as it’s not as big as an adult and still has a very smooth look with out markings.

We claim them as ours as they have been breeding in our garden successfully for years. We see the babies every spring. We are always pleased to see them again.

    You are lucky, I never see them around here.

    Do they ever go in the chicken run?

      I have never seen them any where near the chicken run. We have only ever seen them in the end of the garden nearest the house and the cabin. I think they like the cover there. We are really pleased that they breed in our garden and we see them every year from spring to summer.
