So, my friend Judy inspired me to take some pictures of my garden....nothing really interesting yet - kind of raggedly looking....but what I enjoy more than my plants are my little green lizards...anoles are their names. You can read about them here. This afternoon I went outside and this little guy was sitting on a palm frawn. I noticed he was eating something....looked like a wet paper town piece. Then I noticed he was pulling his skin off of his foot and eating it. He let me stand right next to him and watch. He was molting and kind of wet....so he was sunning himself and eating his skin...I know, gross...but it was interesting.
Here he has a piece of skin in his mouth. I went in an got my camera and the more pictures I took, the closer he came. Terry was mowing the lawn and he would lift his head and look around me and watch Terry mowing.
Now on to the plants....To start with, this is my little Sago Palm nursery. Each year when we cut the old prawns off our Sago Palm, I can't stand to throw out the little pods growing on the side....so I stick them in old pots with leftover dirt. No scientific way of doing it, I just pretty much throw them in and then set the pots on the side of the house, behind the fence. By the end of the summer, I have several small palms. I basically give them away, I don't have anywhere else to plant one. So, if you need a palm...let me know. Those of you up North, they are fun to grow....you can put them in a pot and bring them in, in the winter. My Mom loves watching them grow.
The rest of these plants are ones that have already come up on their own, or never left over the winter.
