I know it sounds silly, but I am so excited to give you all a lizard update. As you may remember me saying, I have never seen a lizard in my yard in all the 14 years I have lived in this house. Last year I ripped out the front lawn, put in a dry riverbed, and planted bee, butterfly, and humming bird friendly plants. I was overjoyed when the bugs and birds came, but I was especially thrilled when I lizard decided that my yard was a great place to call home. I thought I had reached the highest level of awesomeness. That is until this weekend when I noticed my little lizard buddy had a new friend! YEEHAW!!! I know… these are the most common lizards in the world, but still. Taking pictures of these guys is extremely hard since they are so fast, but I did get one to show off. Everyone. I am happy to introduce you to….. my front yard lizards. Umm… I don’t have names for them yet. Any suggestions?
