|This Cyrus scoping out my Dad's old Miami|
house looking for lizards.
|Cyrus sunbathing on our new backyard patio |
here in Pompano.
|Cyrus looking for squirrels & definitely not|
listening to Mamma to come inside, lol.
|"I love you master....SQUIRREL!!!"|
A quote from the movie UP lol
|Cyrus & Jinx looking for things to chase at night|
Our old pink Angel Trumpet tree is full bloom
& smelled super sweet!!!
|Hunting at my Dad' house in Miami, a whole|
builder's half acre to find new adventures &
animals to chase.
|Jinx the hunter..."Momma, your giving my|
hiding spot away...go away!" LOL
|All Jinx's favorite things...the ball, sunbathing,|
looking good for the camera, outdoors & her Momma. :)
|Gulf Fritillary butterfly emerging from the cocoon.|
|A Sulfur butterfly hatching on one of our bromeliads|
|Mating lizards...oh la la!!!|
|Swallowtail caterpillars eating my dill plant|
|I had this hanging metal gourd decoration|
on our old covered deck & to my surprise
was this little tree-frog watching me watering
the orchids. Soooo cute!
|A close up of the tree frog.|
I call it "tree-frog house" LOL.
|There are a mating pair of these|
Cuban anoles that just love our yard
|The Cuban anoles are always hanging out|
just outside my home office window.
|Not sure what kind of moth this is but it|
just stayed on my orchid-house shade
cloth all day. It was about 3"long
|The orioles and hummingbirds just love our|
red cardinal flower plant. The plant grows so
fast during the summer that by fall I have to trim
it back but not too much or the winter birds won't
have anything to snack on.
|A male cardinal searching for goodies|
|A huge iguana on our fence, luckily we don't see many of these.|
|This was a bit disturbing but extremely|
interesting to see out of my home office window.
A female grackle (state protected bird) eating
a lizard, I had no idea they were meat eaters...WOW!
|We call these click bugs or lightening bugs|
In the summer we would collect them in jars as
nightlights when we "camped" in our backyard then let them go in the morning.
So just a few snippets of whats been in our yard since we have lived here. What's in your yard?
