A little tail-less lizard walking around the rim. Ooops...looks like it wasn't just old dirt in there after all. On closer inspection there were multiple (hibernating?) lizards.
This one looks gross- but it is just dirt- he seemed to "wake up" fairly easy and ran off and hid under a nearby rock.
I gave up on that project until it gets a bit warmer...last thing I want to do is freeze a bunch of lizards by bringing them out too early in the year. I'll leave that old dirt sit awhile longer.
So what else is going on in my garden?
The String of Pearls succulent flowers are opening a little more each day.
There are little sunflowers popping up all over the bird area. Sunflower seeds that don't make it into bird bellies sometimes become flowers!
My little "Black Tree" succulent has recovered from my 'over-care' and has bounced right back. I promise to never over water this one again!
My brug has some surprise buds growing on just one side. The other side lost all the leaves with the cold weather...go figure!
Tiny buds on the purple passion vine:
And a dried flower turning into a little passion fruit perhaps?
A sweet Cactus Wren keeping me company:
This little thimble cactus has little tiny flower buds just waiting to burst open. This was a bloomer last winter
And the huge thing in my yard is that I am finally getting irrigation into the big front area. I've hose-watered almost 2 years now so it is past time for this. I'm also getting a neat little path that will wind through the area. This is a shot of part of the path laid out in the dirt. It will be lined with rock when done and irrigation to each little plant in the area.
I am counting the days till Spring!!!!
