I've spent the past few days home with a kid that had the sniffles that somehow turned into pink eye. Or at least it looked like it could have been pink eye - what do I know. Neither hubby nor I have ever had it. So, today I could rant about how annoying it is to keep a kid home that is contagious but not really "sick" or go with another picture post from my garden. Photos for the win!
When I went outside to water my vegetables, which are next to the pond, I noticed I had four beautiful pink lilies in bloom so I quickly darted back inside to get my camera.
From the pictures on California Herps, I think it might be a Sceloporus of some kind. Maybe I will send them the picture. It looked so content and peaceful that I didn't want to try to catch it and flip it over for more identification (translation, I am old and slow and it probably would have taken off the moment I tried).

I hope it hangs around catching lots of icky bugs creeping and crawling around. If only it ate snails, I would build it a little lizard condo with a nice deck overlooking the pond and bring it lizard margaritas in tiny little cups with itty bitty little umbrellas in them.
Have I mentioned I HATE snails!
