Lizards, lizards everywhere.

They added a few new decorations to the club since I been, the owls are very cute but the one on the end has been drinking and feeling a bit under the weather. 

More nerdy elves




After bingo we went to visit a friend in a nursing home, lots of lovely gardens and areas that the older people can sit and enjoy the sunshine.
 But what amazed me was all the blue tounge lizards,  we counted 8 so I took a few pictures. 

















The beer fairy took photos of a spider he made friends with, it only out at night and makes a catcher web to catch his dinner.

  1. What a lot of lovely plump blue tongues, they must have an endless food supply or maybe they are a family. The spider is a beauty and really interesting to see one spinning its web. Cheers, Cheryl

  3. Love the blue tongues. It is a while since I have seen one. We have skinks. Jewel is quite good at catching them (drat her) and always a tad disappointed when they slither off leaving their tails behind.
    I liked the penguin ornament too.

  4. So many blue tongues. I haven't seen one in the wild since I was a kid. We used to give one who lived in the tank stand a small saucer of milk each evening. The spider photos are good.

    1. Hello to you too Andrew .
      We had one a few years back that lived under our house for a while, he was very old and very big, I think the dog food attracted him.

  5. Hello, it is cool seeing all the Blue Tongue lizards. I like the owls at the club too. The spider is a little creepy, but I guess it is ok if friends with the beer fairy. Have a happy day and new week ahead!

    1. Hello.
      The spider is not a harmful one, he lives in the broms in the daytime only out at night so what I don't see doesn't worry me.

  6. Those lizards are chubby little fellows. They could join the elves and look right at home.

    1. Hello
      Owls eat spiders, but I think our fellow is safe.
      I never seen a owl in the wild around here, lots of fruit bats here, messy noisy things.

    1. Hello
      I knew what he was but couldn't remember the name, the beer fairy was calling him a fat daddy long legs.

    1. Hello
      They are kind of different elves, they have personality.
      With the crazy weather we are having the blue tongues are most likely confused I know I am.

  13. The lizards look like they might be friendly, but that spider is a little alarming! Reminds me of the American Southwest when I lived there - we had lizards and tarantulas that were big but harmless. Cute nerdy elves. x K

I like this fence is just a bit different and very neat, mine is falling over so I will get a new one soon, maybe. Wilbur on the swing,...
