There's a snake in my boot!!!

Barry's long lost relative perhaps?

Well not quite.... there's actually a very cheeky blue tongue lizzard hiding in our garden.

We first saw Barry when we were pulling out the plants for our new vegie patch. He scurried (can blue tongue lizzards scurry?) from the garden bed to under our hedge and we hadn't seen him since. I thought that perhaps we'd upset him by destorying his home and he had packed his bags and moved to another garden. But we were wrong.

I saw him this morning sunbaking near our outdoor setting. But by the time I got off the phone to Hubby and found the camera he had disappeared again! Very cheeky indeed. Hopefully next time I see him he isn't as camera shy and I can get a little snapshot of our newest little resident.
