In a reply to a comment in my last blog I said I would explain more about a rather exotic summer holiday job I had when I was about 14. I will do so soon but I am still hunting high and low for photographic evidence to corroborate my claims!
If you are puzzled by all of this – I worked for two summer holidays with four Indian elephants!! More hopefully next week with photos…
In the meantime and continuing the animal theme, I was watering my Thompson and Morgan QVC flowers yesterday and saw a rare but very welcome visitor to my patio – a Common Lizard!
These are rarely seen although fairly widespread in Britain and this female was just basking in the sunlight having eaten a large number of ants! I ran upstairs and grabbed my camera and she was still there when I returned.
I shot several pictures and I think these are the best. I'd love to hear of any rare visitors you have had or still get to your home and/or garden.
Until next week and hopefully 1970's Elepics!
