I’ve been offline for a few days and promise to visit your blog posts over the next several days. Following more than 300 I know I’ll be kept very busy catching up. Hope you are having a good week!
Here are a few photographs I snapped of some garden friends while working in the gardens yesterday – sometimes you just never know where the Gecko’s and Texas Lizards will show up.
Please feel free to use these photographs as reference images for your art.
Love the photos! 🙂

Totally understand what you mean about the reading of other blogs! Thank you for the photos and take it easy.
ja! another gecko/lizard/iguana lover! i also take photos – way too many – of those precious geckos.. i also chase cute little frogs and capture them with camera! i’ve found that many of my female friends do NOT like geckos and frogs…. sort of like that spiders and snakes song from the 70’s!!!!
Ah Z, but aren’t these little creatures fantastic! Love them, just not a lover of spiders or snakes ~
These are wonderful photos! Great shots!! 🙂
You’re welcome, Mary! 🙂
What cute shots of the lizard.
Thanks so much – they have a lot of character as they hammed it up for the camera!
oh my gosh, 300? i’m overwhelmed at 100,
i don’t know how you do it Mary.
Oh I know – thanks! Many folks don’t post, so that makes for an easier time of it. Although when I’m a few days w/o checking in then my reader is over loaded and it takes a long time to weed through the post.
What gorgeous garden friends.
Yes are great friends and always quietly waiting in the wings for my work to be done so they can get back to finding their next dinner.
I have fond memories of those little green guys from when I lived in Texas. No critters like that here in Illinois!
Hi Maggie – I’ll bet you do miss them. When we moved here from Maine I couldn’t believe my eyes, they continue to fascinate us.
Little bee-yooties, Mary !!! Very good-looking small reptiles you have there. And VERY nicely photogaphed ! 🙂
You are so funny! They are natures gift – we love them.
Looks like you had some great company!!!! 🙂 xx
Lol, the only thing they didn’t do was pick up the shovel and help dig plant holes! Yes, they were very curious and quiet onlookers!
They are fascinating, Mary! And so very generous to offer as painting reference. Thank you!:)
Thanks and you’re welcome Elena – hopefully you can find a way to bring them life on your canvas.
I am reminded of the commercials for Geiko insurance….totally endearing they make this little creature!
Thanks Cynthia, you gotta love these gentle creatures. Although when they go after bees they aren’t so gentle and wow they aren’t intimidated by them whatsoever.
300??!! You are going to be very busy. Consider me taken care of. 🙂
I know, it’s a bit much and takes me quite a while to get through all the posts – if I stay on top of it daily it’s not so back because many don’t post. But like right now, I’m way behind and know I won’t be catching up.
so perfectly beautiful! I have a plethora of lizards and chameleons these day, sunning in the brightness of the florida sun.
Thanks, don’t you just love them. We lost a lot of gecko’s this winter, they came out during a burst of warm temperatures and when it plunge into the teens they got caught and I found many dead one’s – so sad. It will be a while before we get the large numbers back.
that is very sad, gecko’s a such fascinating little creatures…nature is beautiful but plays it’s tricks on us, hope they come back soon.
I know – we couldn’t believe what we kept finding.
oh, it must have been very disturbing!
