Garden friends spotted in my garden

I love walking through my garden, but when I stop and bend down, I see so much more! I have so many active friends that work and play in my garden. Let me introduce some of them to you.

My sunbirds are back and enjoying the Pineapple Sage bush – they frequent this bush, so my next photograph shoot will hopefully catch the splendid male.

Lots of Praying Mantis, I am happy to say.

This is an unusually looking one!

My bees are always welcome – we need to be kind to the bees!

My favourite of all – the chameleon!! Fat and happy – I think she is pregnant! What do you think?

This sign keeps reminding me of my best friend who shares my garden with me and cares when I least feel like it and always gives me an encouraging word. AND the happy trips to the nursery – thanks my buddy!

Happy Gardening xxxx

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

The chameleon is just astonishing. What a beautiful creature. So that is the size that pineapple sage should grow to? Mine is a healthy looking specimen but could never be described as a bush and I have to renew it from cuttings every year!

Now that’s someone I’ll never see in our garden, a Chameleon! How fun! He’s wonderfully colorful. We do have lots of lizards zipping about in our new garden though, and hopefully we’ll see a few more of those. That pineapple sage looks absolutely amazing!

I love my bush and the sunbirds just love it too!! I think it will do nice in a pot. It gets leggy though, so I think I should have placed it in a more sunny area.

Oh yes – me too! And by the way, she WAS pregnant – today, she is thinner and I have spotted 2 baby chameleons – I wonder how many they can have.

The is amazing, you were very sharp eyed to see him, oops her. Funny I always think of the lizards in my garden as male, I wonder why. Christina
