We are blessed...

with  this great weather.
All two legged and four legged are out enjoying it.


My back yard is home to many Anoles.
They are green, or brown,
and they are everywhere...
I love them.
My daughter tries to catch them,
sometimes she is lucky..



I am not sure if the squirrels or the birds eats them,
they might not manage to catch any
since they move so fast..


Eini sure knows how to make herself comfortable,
watching the squirrels from her cahir.


And comfortable we are,
with a little sun on the body
and with a knit project in hand..


The last few days I have discovered
Monarch caterpillars on our Milkweed plants.


It is so exiting to see them grow,
and with their enormous appetite eating the leaves,
I will probably have to "emergency plant" some more.


We really enjoy this beautiful creation!


Down by the creek
the turtles are sunbathing as well.


But they don't like to be disturbed,
and dive in the water if they get disturbed.

I think its time for a cup of coffee.....

For en herlig serie av bilder. Jeg lengter mange ganger etter sol i hagen over lang tid. Jammen har du en frodig hage med mye spennende å se på.Klem, ;-)

Så deilig det ser ut! I dag har vi hatt varmerekord for mars her i sør, og jeg har også luftet tærne! Det var kjempedeilig, men det føles ikke helt riktig at det skal være så varmt nå. Klø Eini litt bak øret for meg, da ;))

Sol og varme kjennes godt her også etter en lang, mørk og kald vinter.
Men sommer i mars slik vi har hatt her er litt skremmende også.

For noen vakre tånegler, slike får man ikke på hvert hjørne i Norge! Kos deg!

Åh så exotiskt och idylliskt det ser ut! Inte minst för mig som sitter i norra Sverige och tittar ut på snöhögen utanför fönstret.
Och sköldpaddor! Vilda?

Så deilige bilder. Men salamandere ville jeg ikke hatt i hagen... Ser ut som dere har fine dager.

Oh spring fever, how I love thee! What a beautiful day by the pool and out and about. We are over a month ahead up here in Minnesota. I can hardly believe that it's already turning green.

No lizards for us - we have tree frogs, but it will be awhile yet before I see them.

PS. Did you plant milkweed in pots? What a grand idea - I mean, they grow as weeds in our park, but they are becoming so scarce that I think I'll start growing some in our yard. Thanks for the tip.
