Nature on Our Doorstep

I love living in the hills. It is so different to where we were before. The kids are loving it and we don't need to go any further than our own yard for our nature studies!!

This is what Paul found when he opened the front door yesterday....

and then the dog discovered another in the back yard. We have nicknamed them Bob - short for Bobtails. Creative I know, but hey, it works.

Then today we opened the front door again to find our newest friend.

This little one who we have nicknamed Maggie has been hanging around for a while (well, we think it is the same one) but we fed her today and she kept coming back all day for more. She is not timid at all, even taking food right out of my hand and almost following me inside! We will leave some mince out for her tomorrow and see if she returns.


  1. What in the world is "Bob"? Great photos.

  2. Hi Edwena,
    Bob is a Bobtail or Blue Tongue lizard. I am in Australia and they are reasonably common around here. Just checked out your blog - you have beautiful children!

  3. I love it when nature happens on the front steps. My lizard fanatics want one like that (fortuantely for us, our lizards are tiny little things! ;) ). TFS!
