Creatures In The Garden

Just a few creatures I found in the garden on this hot day.

Two doves sitting on the picnic table.  Aren't they a cute couple?

A skink enjoying the apple core I tossed on the compost pile.

A skipper.


  1. Look at that skink! What an odd creature. Fun seeing these shots.



  2. Love your critters. Hope more come your way:) That's what a garden is all about:)

  3. It doesn't seem to matter where we are, animals seem to find us don't they? Some lovely, and interesting ones finding your garden at the moment Sherlock. Love the doves.

  4. I "discovered" a skink in my container of potting mix one day. I think the entire neighborhood heard that screech. LOL!
    That is a cute dove couple--they look so sweet.

  5. Critters always add something to our gardens. I love the dove couple.

    Have a wonderful weekend ~ FlowerLady

  6. The Doves are so pretty. The skink not so much. LOL! I guess it looks too much like a snake to me. You have a lovely weekend.

  7. I would not have thought the skink would like apples!

  8. I like what Chris said about the critters being what the gardens are all about. We have doves, but not skinks, and the skippers around here are a different kind. There are garter snakes that live in and around the compost pile here.

    Oh, and thanks for your comment on my last post. I think you said something about my garden being ready for the monarchs. I am tickled to be seeing caterpillars this week, and the numbers of bees seems to be increasing.

  9. Out of all the animals I've noticed around here, I've never seen a lizard of any sort. Can I adopt your skink?! (I don't know why I don't seem to have any. I think I need to research what ones might be here.)

  10. Nice pictures!! Best regards from Zadar, Croatia!
