Of roses and lizards...

One of the few good things about Winter in So. California
is that the lizards disappear from my backyard
and I finally can venture out and enjoy my morning coffee
without the risk of a heart attack.

I don't have a bid yard,
actually, no yard is big enough for me and lizards.
If they are out, I'm in...simple and clear.

That's why these winter mornings...
warm and oh so missed sunny moments are so enjoyable.
Those moments when the roses let me think
that Spring will soon be here....

those moments when the roses whisper in my ears:
Enjoy us, because the lizards are also coming back soon!

Enjoy your weekend!

Beautiful roses, I would not blame you for not wanting to "share" with the lizards ! Beautiful rose photos ! I am sitting in a ton of snow :(

Oooh, my roses are frozen and the lizards are in hibernation. I miss the California winters!

Be careful and stay away from those critters!

Ciao bella Marcela,

Ha, you crack me up!
Really, little lizards? Or are they big ones that bite you?
The roses are wonderful and so good to see on this bleak midwest winters day.

Oh I hate lizards too, yuck! The roses are so beautiful though. And I'm s glad we'll be getting rid of this cold weather, I want it to be spring and summer so badly! It looks like this weekend will be nice! Hope yours is wonderful.

Your roses are gorgeous, Marcela. I too would be scared away by the lizards.
