My good friend ‘Restlessjo’ of the ever-wandering feet, had the temerity, or should I perhaps say “impertinence” to tell me that my speciality is “snooping on small creatures”! I guess she’s right, although I’ve never thought of myself as a ‘snooper’. I prefer to call it “observing and recording the peculiar habits of my Floridian Backyardigans.”
This morning, I was just walking to the laundry room, through the obstacle course which is my future living area, when I happened to glance out of my kitchen window. (Yes, it won’t be too long now before I actually have a kitchen.) Ther in full view, was Ignatius stretched out in the sun on top of what I hope will one day be a beautiful water feature.
Creeping up on him was Igua, his great admirer.
She looked around to check whether Uncle Igasho was watching her advances, but he had abdicated his chaperone duties for the morning, and was resting in the shade of a palm tree
The two iguanas sat sunning themselves in companionable silence for a while until hubby decided it was time for him to wheel his electric saw outside and make lots of noise cutting up pieces of wood. That put an end to my ‘snooping’, and the loving couple skedaddled as fast as their legs could go. Even Uncle Igasho woke from his daydreaming and retired to the safety of the reeds at the water’s edge. I think he looks slightly miffed at being disturbed.
Wishing you all a very happy and relaxing Fathers’ Day weekend.
