The baby anole was back today, very active and busy. When I approached the area where he was sitting, he bobbed his head at me assertively (no dewlap yet though). His tiny body was almost translucent.

He hopped up onto the fence and climbed all the way to the top.

I first saw this little one last Thursday, May 26, so he’s at least 4 or 5 days old now.

And basil growing outside the back door.

My lunch today: fresh picked tomatoes and basil, with a little feta cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.

The baby mockingbirds are growing into gawky, long-legged adolescents now. This one landed on the fence today.

There’s nothing wrong with its wings–it flew to the fence and then away from the fence without any problem. But it does look like a pretty odd bird here.

Gloriosa lily in the sun.

Another memory–my girls Sophie and Lulu, together in the yard. Still missing them terribly, but we were so lucky to have them for so long.
