Lily and Lizzy the lizard

January 04 2015. 001 (22)

Lily has a thing for lizards

 not only does she love them but, they seem to really love her too

lizards are fast

not even Foxy can catch them in our garden

but Lily…. she often does

on new years day, while she was in the pool, she found a lizard floating on a foam noodle

not only did Lily play with her for a while but she wanted to keep her as a pet

she wanted to keep Lizzy (as she named her)

we gathered some rocks, sticks, leaves and put Lizzy in the terrarium glass house we have for a while

at the end of the day, we put her back in the garden (a kind of “if you love someone you have to let them go” type of lesson)

this past sunday, while we were in the garden, she found Lizzy floating on a foam noodle once again (does Lizzy have a death wish? lizards do not do well in pool water)

she picked her up, played with her and once again she wanted to keep her as a pet but i convinced her to let her go so she could go be with her family

Lily, our little lizard whisperer…
