These turtles can live up to forty years, so Tommy is taking precautions and not socialising for a while.

Six Word Saturday: A Rather Spiky Place To Perch

This Red-shouldered Hawk obviously prefers to take the middle-ground.

Six Word Saturday: Oh, There You Are, Grandpa Igasho!

I’ve been a bit concerned for grandpa’s safety, as I haven’t seen his orange beacon up in the trees for about a week. A couple of days ago, he made a welcome appearance outside my bathroom window, so I knew he’d managed to steer clear of the Iguana Control man’s pellet gun.

I hope Igasho realizes that he really shouldn’t be ‘sticking his head above the parapet’ and goes back to his tree safe house.

Six Word Saturday: Get The Measure Of This One!

Peering out through my kitchen window yesterday, I spotted Alli-baba cruising by. Oh my, how he’s grown since I last saw him!

I read that one can gauge the length of an alligator by guessing (or somehow actually measuring) the distance between the tip of their nose to their eyes and then converting that measurement from inches to feet. Without going so far as to swim out there with my tape measure, I’m thinking this one is probably close to 15 feet. If any of you disagree with me, you are most welcome to measure for yourself. I’ll even fetch you from the airport. You’ll probably only need a one-way ticket.

Have a splendid weekend.

Six Word Saturday: Iguanas haven’t discovered my orchid yet.

Went out to inspect my orchid this morning, and am pleased to report that it hasn’t been munched, and is really making splendid progress.

Thankfully Mr. Iggy and family mostly stay in the backyard.

The defunct rock water feature seems to be a favourite sunbathing spot amongst the reptiles living here.

They also love this tree stump.

Hubby told me found this one inside the house a couple of days ago and chased it out the door.

My almost dead orchid which had been forgotten about and left to fend for itself in the garage after we moved, has been rescued and tied to the palm tree outside my bathroom window. Hope it’s happy there. If it get flower buds, I’ll be sure to show you, as long as you promise not to tell Iggy.

Hope you’re all having a splendid weekend. It’s a sparkling Florida spring day here.

I’m also linking this to Jude’s April Garden Photography Challenge ‘Get a Little Closer’.
