Green Anatole is Common in Flower Mound, TX

Little lizards are common in Flower Mound, Texas. This one is a male and found something in the garden to blow out his sack under his chin to proclaim he is territorial. I'm glad they eat bugs but I would not touch them. Although people can turn them into a reptile pet, I prefer to keep them outside where they are free to roam on anything or anywhere, except me. 


In summer they are a very pretty shade of green. Now that autumn is near, I noticed they are more brown. Just like scavengers, they eat insects. Although some people may call them a chameleon, because they can change colors, they really aren't chameleons at all. 


Autumn days come quickly, like the running of a hound on the moorIrish proverb


Soon it will be the Autumnal or September Equinox. That date is Saturday, 9/22/18. Summer seems to go by fast. According to the Farmer's Almanac, "during the equinox, the sun crosses what we call the 'celestial equator.' Earth's two hemispheres receive the sun's rays about equally. The sun is overhead at noon as seen from the equator, so at this point, the amount of nighttime and daytime (sunlight) are roughly equal to each other."


I spoke to my sister way up north in Phelps, WI on Sunday and squirrels are gathering acorns, lots of acorns, more acorns than usual all around her lake house. My Sellers who moved to Blue Ridge, GA are witnessing hungry bears already. It sounds like it could be a long, cold winter. For now, I'll continue to enjoy the sun and reptiles in my Flower Mound garden.

It is the fall’s first chill: They meet."

As much as I love fall, it does bring the 'dread' of winter ahead, Patricia!

Like you, I want the lizards outdoors to catch the bugs...and can be anywhere but, on me!!

Happy Tuesday!

Hi Patricia,  Yuck to all the lizards.  We have their brothers and sisters here  I am not a reptile fan (or couldn't you tell) much as I love animals.  As long as they'ree outside, we're good.  The little guys, the geckos, I don't mind.  They're pretty harmless.


We can tell it's fall in south Florida.  That's when the snowbirds begin to come back.  We see the license plates everywhere.  And I look foward to some cooler weather.
