A couple of months ago a little lizard came to visit while I was planting in pots on my porch. I haven't seen him up here since, but I think I saw a glimpse of him at the foot of the steps the other day.
Maybe the lizard checks on them at night when the cats are cuddled up in the bedroom fast asleep dreaming of gophers and other delights.
No blooms yet, but hope springs eternal, as they say.
All that intense labor (LOL) is worth it when you can kick back and smell the flowers.
Enjoy your day!
