Garden Guardian


As I was clearing some brush and small limbs to make way for a hugelkultur, I noticed one of our guardians sunning himself in the morning sun.

This is a Carolina Anole, and despite appearances, he’s only about 5″ long. We love having the anoles around, as I’ve seen them scampering around with bad bugs — big bugs — in their mouths. Now, if we could just expand the diet to include slugs, we might get some Napa cabbage this year.

Knowing that true rest is hard to find, I couldn’t disturb him, so these branches never made it to the section I was digging that day. Nature is best left undisturbed.
