Thanks for the response to the pineapplette and my Saturday Shadows, people Smile


Now then...here's something from yesterday and I hope a couple of them can make up for a missed Silly Sunday Grin

I'd just got back from some shopping in the afternoon when my neighbour accosted me. He asked me to get my cam 'cos there was a nice tree lizard in his driveway. VERY nice lizard, as it turned out. Clinging for dear life to what looks like miniature bamboo growing in a small faux rock pond.

I love the way lizards can look so awkward clinging to things especially when legs go in all sorts of directions Grin

Oh, and this guy was maybe…hmm…about 8-10cm long without the tail? Looks like a young ‘un. Well…teenager, perhaps.

V4 is my neighbour Smile

I get a crick in my neck looking at more than three images. But seven, I'll send the chiropractors bill. Your little friend seems to enjoy a good cuddle. Don't we all. Great set Andrew. Your a pain the neck. GrinGrinGrinGrin Peter.

I want one - but John will not let me have a lizard - he says we really have enough in the garden....we do have some nice Texas rock lizards that are getting fat eating snails. They are very beneficial reptiles. My plants are quite grateful.......
