08/04/2016 The return of the Green lizard and various photos at home and out walking.

Maximum temperature 12C, minimum 0C.   29 km/h NW winds.  4mm rain measured this morning.
Green Lizard.  Lacerta viridis.

Black bird, I think immature.

Greenfinch female.

House centipede.  Scutigera coleoptrata.  The good guys as they eat insects and spiders!

A trip to the optician.  Nigel's cycling glasses have a cracked lens!

Lavoir at Fleurignac.

Well at Fleurignac.

A beautifully cut hedge.

Curious cattle.  Note they all have their horns cut.



Wild bluebells.

Muddy horses.



  1. I love the Green Lizard. He is so beautiful.
    What country are you living in?

    1. We have a number of the Green lizards in our garden so we are lucky. I live in the Charente in France. Have a good weekend Diane

    1. They get less scared of me by the middle of summer, this early they always seem to be wary. Have a good weekend Diane

  3. I just can't imagine doing laundry there.

  4. Nice looking lizard, and that centipede is a great looking thing!

    1. The green lizards are great and I am glad to have them breeding in our garden. As for the centipede, most people hate them, but if they eat the spiders then they are welome :-) Diane

  5. The green lizard is such a vibrant green. Incredible creature.

    1. Wait till I see some males, vibrant green with a touch of blue as well, they are beautiful. Diane

  6. We have lots of house lizards but they are not green. The house centipede is a pretty one and it is new to me. Love all the animals photos. I wonder why the horns of cows are cut?

    1. The green lizards are very big and can grown up to 400mm long. The cows have their horns cut I suspect to protect them against each other, the handlers and calves. Keep well Diane
