Whew, it is warm already, 5 a.m., 74 with 84% humidity.
Today they are forecasting temps of 91 and tomorrow 99.
My a/c is running merrily along. I'm making the electric company
very very happy.
All of my new plantings are going to need a nice soaking today.
And, I think I will be able to pick my first fig of the season.
I should have made my page about the critter that I saw on my porch
yesterday. But, he is still giving me chills. Have you ever
seen a Broadhead Skink? Me neither and I'm pretty sure
I don't want to ever again. He's fine out in the yard but NOT
up on my front porch.
|Male Broadhead Skink|
If it hadn't been for the reddish head I wouldn't have been able
to identify him. And, according to website info my skink is a him.
They aren't small or, as far as I'm concerned, very pretty.
Not at all like my sweet little green lizards that I dearly love.
These little guys like to hang out on my patio plants.
I must get to the store early this morning before it
gets too hot.
