This beautiful lizard found on the road was introduced to Reptile Heaven this morning.

As well as sighting more big lizards there are lots of skinks and smaller dudes around the place too.

In the image of the lizard below you can also see some stinging nettles in the background. These have just started coming up and were in the mulch we brought in. We will leave them to do their thing and suspect they will have a couple of cycles and then other plants will come up to do their healing in the soil. We will keep you posted with the cycles and findings from this fun experiment!

A red belly black snake and an eastern brown snake have been sighted in the garden near reptile heaven. This year there are many more snakes around. One was sited mid winter -at the Octoberfest site- sunning itself on the top of a living system. This we see is a great sign along with bigger lizards moving into the area (see image up top of this post).

This hedge was dying. Susan and Michael put a whole heap of matter on the top side and the hedge is flourishing and flowering this year attracting heaps of bees and spiders.

We haven’t had much rain so the lower pond is fairly empty (see image below) but the lomandra is growing up nice and bushy and the wattles are going really well other than the ones snapped off and attacked by the deer.
