What I have learned abot the south

You can plant a garden in July

Red dirt willl stain a white dog

Ya never know when a tree frog will show up

Sand Lizzards like to climb on the wall by your kitchen window

This is some kind of a sand Lizzard that lives down in the south..creepy looking

I have also learned that the snakes don't only crawl at night..saw one today and took a picture but can't get it to upload
and after it rains and you think you hear a 200 pound Duck quacking that it is actually a huge FROG.
When you let your cat outside the Mockingbirds make a racket thinking the cat will find your nest so then you go and lay on the ground and fall over on your side and pretend you are injured so the cat will come to where you are.
Katidids are VERY LOUD. and last but not least Wood Roaches do bite
It is definately different in the South and a real learning experience

Interesting, Nancy....does the red clay/dirt come off with washing? hope so...and I like the lizard..we have lots of them here...they are gardeners friends and eat tons of bugs..you might want to think about getting some hens or a duck as they eat frogs and other critters..hope your garden does great!

I'm laughing at all your "southern" discoveries!!!! I can take the little lizards, but I don't like it when those little frogs jump on me. A lot of times, they will get on the windows at night and catch all the little buggies.

I remember that red clay in Virginia. But I did have to laugh at the dog picture!!!!! So cute!
