Is that a skink on the rock wall?

I don't know what kind of flowers those are, but they're lovely.

It's a tiny blue-tailed skink -- lizard, not snake.

The flowers are Great Lobelia (lobelia siphilitica.) American Indians used it in a root tea to treat syphilis and made a tea of the leaves for colds, coughs, stomach troubles and other ailments. Don't try this at home -- improper use has resulted in death.

You reminded me of many trips with my children, playing the guessing game, is it bigger than a breadbox? I had to tell my grandchildren what a breadbox was...

Vicki, once again, you've shown us such beautiful pictures from the great outdoors. I do admit that even a glimpse of a snake gives me a little shiver.

I'm certainly enjoying the lobelia this year---quite profuse!

It is always a treat to look at your photos – and I am intrigued by all these Shelton.
