    [​IMG] My hubby took this pic yesterday of a five-lined skink catching the days first rays. We set up houses in our yard for them.[​IMG]My water lily is finally blooming!

    I love looking at your photographs Bethie. That butterfly is beautiful - did you make it? Love the pic of the skink. :-D My white waterlily opened yesterday and looks exactly the same as your one. :)

    Thank you, Eileen. Yes, we made the butterfly. He is a Buckeye. I don't know if you have anything comparable there. Here is a luna moth and a cecropia moth.[​IMG]We find cecropia cocoons in the winter down by the river and hatch them in spring.

    We've got nothing like those here Bethie - much too exotic for our Scottish climate. :( Thanks for the piccies of the Luna Moth and the Cecropia. I really think I like the Luns Moth best of all as it just looks so calming. :-D

    Ok a gnome is about to move home and guess what Bethie it is to your garden. :DI could have sneaked in but I thought that would ask your permission first Let me pack my suitcases first. I love your garden!

    That skull looks like something out of the James Bond movie "Live and Let Die". I like the way the lizard appears to be crawling out of its eye. Very creepy :eek:
