Remember the nest I saved from destruction? This is whose life I saved. Nothing so exotic as a sunbird or anything. I think this is a baby sparrow. At least it's not an Indian Myna. I took the picture through the blinds - hence the fuzzy lines in the foreground.

I came home tonight to find an intruder. Green and slimy and about 5cm long. But I had the last laugh: my floor is so filthy it got caught up in a strand of my hair!!!

Same little guy, enjoying the baby quilt I finished a few weeks ago. After posing for a few more shots, he let me take him outside, into the rain.

And lastly, another flower from the front garden.

Huh, it must be frog day in bloggerworld. The Other Val over in Dorset England also has a photo of a very handsome frog on her site. Yours is very sweet.

Re sparrows, did you know their numbers are actually on the decline worldwide? Something I read in the paper about a year ago. Not that that is always to be believed.

Well, your bush can finally be trimmed up, just as soon as this little sparrow leaves...Or are there more?

That was really nice of that cute little green frog to pose for pictures, and on that pretty baby quilt too. I hope you gave him a bug for his efforts and untangled his little feet.
When my hair was long, I would find it everywhere...you would have thought that I was shedding worse than the cat. I did shed worse than our dog.

Your flower is so pretty. Yesterday, I saw some beautiful orchids, while looking for water plants and I thought of you and your beautiful orchid pictures that you had posted previously.

What an adorable little frog. How did he get in? My kids would have wanted to keep him for a pet for a while.

A baby birdy - you did a good job. Wish I would find a frog around - so dry here that not a frog has peeped.
I do have a lizard that lives under my washer and dryer - he must eat the cat food because he seems to be getting bigger.

I just had to say hi when I encountered your blog. I love giraffes. In fact, my blog name is twiga92 - twiga is giraffe in Swahili. I lived in Kenya for a couple years and that's when I fell in love with giraffes.
