Fun Things From Our Backyard!!

We have had lots of exciting times around our yard lately.  Always an adventure!

Like this poor guy...a huge Texas Spiny Lizard that had jammed himself between the grate and mesh on our outside Air Conditioner unit. 

Thankfully, Hubby came home on his lunch break and took off the grate, which let me free the little guy.  I didn't think he was going to make it, but an hour later, he was gone, so hopefully he was just idea how he got in there that far, but I'm thinking happy thoughts that he is ok (don't ruin it for me)!!

Pecan season is just starting!!!  It looks like one or two of our seven trees might have some for us this year!!!

We love watching for butterflies in the yard...they are so pretty!

And this baby Texas Spiny Lizard...he/she did NOT take its eyes off of me the whole time we were playing on the swingset, but thankfully it let me snap a photo...thankfully it also wasn't anywhere near the above butterfly :)

LadyBear loves to swing and LittleBear loves to push her!

Just today we found a new Monarch caterpillar on our milkweed!  He's still there...maybe he'll decide to stay?

We have had a few Queen butterfly visitors as well, which Orbit has enjoyed watching from his favorite window seat...

And the biggest Monarch I have seen in a long time stopped by for a pit stop...

We love our backyard!!!
