Is it warm enough for us to come out yet?

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Thanks! There were even some fence lizards out today as we hit a high of 77. I love the lizards & they do become quite friendly.

Nice! I haven't seen any in a while.

Goodness. It is amazing what happens amongst one's groundcover of native violets. Can you guess what is going on?

Is it an Eastern Bearded Dragon - Pogona barbata? It feels threatened enough to display the beard under the throat but it is not so threatened as to open it's mouth & display the yellow lining. ??????

VERY COOL even if I got it wrong.

All correct Thumbs up It was eating my native violet flowers but when It pushed through a clump it ran front-on into the painted cement turtle garden ornament - and displayed! It decided this was a mistake and went back to eating my violet flowers Grumbling What can one do?

I sort of wondered if the turtle statue had anything to do with the dragon putting on a display. Silly dragon.

I know what you mean but at least if something is going to eat the violets it's a cute something.

Yes, the dragon is welcome to the flowers.

Of interest, he is new to the garden. My other ones were older but I haven't seen them this year, which is unusual.

Here he is today - that bearded dragon - pigging out on fallen papaya blossoms and then having a good bask.

It is a pity you can not see him in life. Every now and again he waves that foot you see.

P.S. He is about 1.2 feet long. Still youngish.

I was wondering how large they get. Now I know without having to go research again. Thumbs up He sure is handsome though. I like them! Do they kind of get to know you & get used to you?

Yes they do get used to you Ann but they never give up on the yellow gape display and hiss when you get too close.

Gleni, your bearded dragon is new to me. It must be fun living near them like you do. We have lizards but ours are mostly small ones. They too love to hang out on our house walls soaking up the sun. They get fairly tame when we're around, but always run and hide from our dog, and rightfully so. He takes their tails off when he can catch them. Sad
Here are some of our New Mexico lizards.

Thank you both! We enjoy watching them very much. When we lived in the tropics we had geckos. They were very cute. Some of them came in the house and lived with us. We loved to hear them chirping.
