Isn't She Lovely?

 Meet the new garden box mentioned in Monday's post . . .

Now, here's a curious thing . . .

Ok, please tell me these are lizard eggs.  We found tons of them in an old pot in the back of the shed.  They're about maybe half an inch long, and we have tons of little anoles all over the place.  Please tell me I'm not breeding snakes in the shed.  Please, please, please don't tell me that.   I found a little brown one under some leaves the other day and nearly gave up on nature altogether.

So . . . lizard eggs, right?


  1. I grew up on a farm, but snakes are still my ultimate foe. I would curl up and die if I thought I had a snake breeding patch. I found some mysterious animal droppings and almost put the house up for sale! Mine were lizard... hope you get the same news. BTW... Love your blog.

  2. Could be geckos. We get lots of those down here and those shells look like what my mom found in her greenhouse.

  3. Dude. I couldn't bring myself to go outside if I saw that... I hope it's lizards.

    Maybe you could find a local wildlife expert to answer the question? At the zoo or a local college?

    Good luck.

  4. Thanks, everyone. Ooh, we have geckos, too. Maybe . . .

    Oh! I can bring them to the nature station! Thanks, Deb! Except . . . I think Harper crushed them all in the compost heap. I don't know if I have the strength to dig around in there to find them. Maybe Egg Mama's lurking around in there . . . *shudder*

  5. I know it grosses you out... but we think it is pretty cool!!! :)

    Love your square food garden box - have fun with it!

  6. Oh, I really do think it's cool. Just . . . I mean, could they be cool like that somewhere else? Like the way back corner of the yard??? ;-)

    Thanks, we're loving the box, too! Not too sure what to do around it yet, I'm loving the smaller size. Perfect for the little ones.
