I've spent the past few days home with a kid that had the sniffles that somehow turned into pink eye. Or at least it looked like it could have been pink eye - what do I know. So, today I could rant about how annoying it is to keep a kid home that is contagious but not really "sick" or go with another picture post from my garden.
I went outside to water my vegetables which are next to the pond and noticed I had four beautiful pink lilies in bloom so I ducked back inside to get my camera.
Ooooh aren't they pretty?
Then this little beauty climbed up on a rock nearby to catch some rays.
Look at those pretty blue markings!
From the pictures on California Herps, I think it might be a Sceloporus of some kind. Maybe I will send them the picture. It was so peaceful I didn't want to try to catch it and flip it over for more identification (translation, I am old and slow and it probably would have taken off the moment I tried).
Hope it hangs around catching lots of icky bugs creeping and crawling around. If only it ate snails, I would build it a little lizard condo overlooking the pond and bring it lizard margaritas in tiny little cups with umbrellas in them. Have I mentioned I HATE snails!
And in case you missed it, I am having a fun little giveaway to celebrate my 100th blog, deadline is tomorrow
