Summer Fun

One of my clients gave us this pop-up backyard pool as a gift. We call it the "Big Blue Blob"
It's really not that big, but that's ok. It holds enough water to cool off in! Unfortunately, it's going to leave a "Big Brown Blob" in the grass when I remove it. Good thing our grass (weeds) grows back fast :)

Summer Storm

A few days ago, we had a doozy of a late afternoon thunderstorm and this large branch of my carrotwood tree, came down.
After I trimmed away all the branches that I could, this was left.

I'm considering leaving it like this for now. I think it looks kind of cool, like the tree is trying to get up and walk away!

Froggy Footprints

Several mornings lately when I go out to the driveway, I'm finding track marks in the dew drops on my new car! 
I could not tell at first what was crawling around on my car in the night and I was worried it would scratch the paint.
Not sure what was happening here. 
Maybe a nightly critter hoedown under the moon?
Finally after a few days of this,
 I could make out the hoofers telltale shape.
Looks like my car is playing dance floor to a froggy free style routine!
At least the paint is safe. Dance on little frog, dance on!

Eeek, What is it?!

Summer in Florida brings on not only the heat, but some cool creatures as well. I found this guy outside my garage chasing a lizard up my brick wall. I guess I spooked him because he took refuge under the wall a/c unit for a whole day. I tried to coax him out with some lettuce, he was not interested.

I know it's a reptile, but what kind? Iguana, Bearded Dragon, someones missing pet, not sure? He was about 12 inches long and had some greenish/yellow stripes under his neck.  I was hoping to get more photos, but the next time I looked, he was gone. I now have a hole in the ground about his size, at the bottom of that wall. I wonder if he dug himself a tunnel to live in? Anyone have any idea what kind of lizard he is?

Zoom Zoom!


After 12 long years my old wagon finally became a liability. It had to go before it drained my wallet.
So out with the old and in with the new....well almost like new.

This is my new to me anyway, 2011 Mazda 3 hatchback! I have never owned such a sporty car, but it called my name and followed me home. Makes me feel sort of young again :)
Zoom Zoom!

It Might Be Spring!

 The flowers are blooming.
 My Pigeon Peas are flowering.
 I love how delicate these tiny flowers are!
My parsley is growing secondary leaves. It's also 86 degrees outside and yesterday we had a thunderstorm. It just might be Spring!
