Critter Cousins

A  L  O  H  A !

A Tree is a Critter If You Love It

"The wall is silence,
 the grass is sleep,  
Tall trees of peace 
their vigil keep,
And the Fairy of Dreams 
with moth-wings furled
Plays soft on her flute 
to the drowsy world."
                 Ida Rentoul Outhwaite 

Brush Lizard, Marin California

Life is too short 
to be small.
                          Benjamin Disraeli

Gold Dust Gecko, Hawaii

"A smile will gain you 
ten more years of life."

The reptiles are quite a treat. We tend to have few kinds of reptiles here.

I love the field with all the green grass and the tree. Great poems and quotes, too.

I have not seen a lizard since moving here to Germany...I do not even know if they exist here. I miss seeing them :)
