Jill we have a lot of different lizards here but they don't seem to live very long in the house...not enough bugs. I love all the little critters in my yard. We have 2 different green ones, salamanders, blue tail (skinks?) a beige gecko, found a green striped grass snake a couple weeks ago..wish I would have taken pictures of it.

Been out digging up bulbs on old homesteads. We went out at 9 and didn't come home till 3:30. Boy am I tired and covered in mud. It has rained so much here the past few weeks. Make it good for digging but with the big Crinums we found the really wet mud causes a suction and they are hard to pull loose and they go to China. We are going tobuy pots tomorrow to take them to the flea market the second weekend in March. We have found narcissus, red lycoris (red spider lilies), white Rain lilies, Crinums, a bunch of Summer Snowflake Leucojum aestivum http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/53286/ (I love these) and some other bulbs not sure what they are. I am covered in fire ant bites (but I won as I ended up with the bulbs) and about 15 bites. We have been digging alot but decided we need to stop and sort them and pot some before we dig more. We found huge patches of short monkey grass that we will cut out of the ground and just slide into pots, a ton of Variegated Greater Periwinkle Vinca major and a solid green one, NOID Iris, NOID Daylilies, Cast Iron Plant, Ruellia tall purple. I think we should do well at the flea market. I want an ipad and am hoping to make enough for one and hopefull even more money than that. Also starting school Fri. Not sure what yet but will know tomorrow when we go sign up. It will either be payroll or optician (person who fits glasses ect) they are a 12 week course and we can get a grant. Hurray!

OK need a shower, I am so exhausted I can't hardly sit in the chair and type. Group hug Group hug
