Our resident gecko Charlie actually tapped on the dining room window
one morning this week! I was quite startled to see him looking at me
through the glass - grabbed my phone to get these photos.
He then crawled around the outdoor chairs for a while finally leaping
into the Boston fern on the front porch table - I believe that potted
fern is his home.
He was golden in color that day, other days he's quite green -
a magnificent little creature, and hopefully keeping the unwanted
insect population down.
. . . . . .much larger, both in size and number, are the grey squirrels,
who are actually always present around here.
Autumn's almost here and they are hungry for hickory nuts and
acorns, both of which look plentiful this year.
The larger hickory nuts have been falling for a couple of weeks,
acorns just starting but will rain down from our oaks in the coming
Are you noticing a lot of wildlife in your garden as autumn arrives?
