Of Grapefruit, Lizards and Pollen


From the back yard I spied 3 grapefruit all in a row, while zooming in I had a feeling I was being watched.


I looked to my left and there He was, watching me. I noticed a foot away a pretty green weed.


When I uploaded I found he was not watching me, but his intended. Can you find her in these two photos?



Our trees are confused, we have been in the 80's and this has caused the tree to have blooms, small fruit like marbles and the big fruit we are eating.
Three seasons on one tree. Weather fooling with us is NOT good for our economy.
Besides the pollen is falling like it does in March.

Adorable little lizard and found him in every photo. =0)

The weather is way off here as well, it snowed here but, only 4cm fail here when usually a good foot or so develops. For the past few years or so it be lucky it snowed here at all so you can imagine some peoples dismay when it snowed here.

Some were shocked, some packed, while others like myself were happy to see the snow. It's when it doesn't snow at all is when people should hit the panic button because it's not normal for here.

I hope to see more snow in coming years to see our weather back on track again so that we can have a healthy environment to live in with less if any more sicknesses.

Very cool photos of your little lizard. I am a bit jealous you grow your own grapefruit, not to mention your weather.

Ruth Hiebert said...

Now I'm wanting a grapefruit. This one looks so good.

Deb said...

Mother Nature is playing with everyone...hope she comes to her senses soon

Ginny said...

I LOVE find-it games! And I did find her, up tight against the pole. Do you eat this grapefruit and how long does it grow? That is very cool, all natural and your own.

If I looked up and saw grapefruit in a tree it would mean only one thing - I had died and gone to heaven.

Ann Thompson said...

yep, I see her. The weather that is confusing mother nature will end up in prices going way up

Dee said...

Happy New Year! I wish the weather was in the 80's where I am right now. It's been snowing all day and it's around 23 degrees.

I didn't see the little guy at first, then I finally spotted him. You know, I could go for some fresh grapefruit right about now... :)

It took some looking but I found her in one of the photos. - I love lizards and I love grapefruit. I'm always sad that I'm not able to eat it anymore due to taking Cholesterol medication.
