Please name my Lizard

On Saturday morning, I was out watering my plants.  As I was putting water into my little pitchers on my Pitcher Plant, out pops a little head.  Now, let me tell you, I am normally squeamish around lizards.  I thought, wow, am I glad that I hadn't put water in the pitcher.  What would I have done if that little lizard had jumped out on me?  I am sure that anyone looking would have thought, "that lady is having a fit!"  Then I get my breath back and think oh, that is cool.  Then I realize after talking to my husband, that it would be good to have a lizard living in my plant.  He said that they eat bugs, which is great, except that the main reason for a Pitcher Plant is for catching bugs.  Well, this lady is going to let the lizard live and he can help take care of the bugs on that particular plant.

I went out again this morning to see if he was still there and yes, he was still there and I had my camera ready this time when he poked his out.  I know this is crazy, but I think that I could enjoy having lizards live within my plants.  Just as long as they respect my space and don't jump on me.  Then I might have to rethink.  So if anyone has any name for my lizard, let me know.  I thought that I would let my grand-daughters have a look and see what name they can give.


  1. He's too cute! If my vote counts, I think you should name him Carni since he is living in a carniverous plant!

  2. Thank you for making my day with your comment. That name will be put in the pot. Love you, Mother

  3. I think you should name him Lenny. Lenny the lizard. Your blog page looks great. I am going to need to get mine going. Your background looks good. How did you find it?

  4. Thanks! You and Amy need's spelled just like I thought I did, Carni. I do like her name better though. Good night and I love you!!!

  5. What a great blog! I'm here by way of wonderful Mandy. I must say, I just about fell over when I saw those baby butts succulents. They DO look just like those! Hahahahaha!

    Okay, this cutie patootie lizard.... Umm... Babe? As in Babe Ruth who also started out in (as) a pitcher? I know, groan. :)

    LOVE the roses in your background!

  6. Hi Sherree! My name is Candy and I am a blog friend of Mandy's. I have a blog too and just turned 53. I love succulents also. Your blog looks great! And how cool is that lizard living in your pitcher plant. I wonder what he does in the pitcher. Maybe there is sweet sticky stuff inside that he likes. I think Bella's name is great. Great comparison!

  7. This is to everyone that was so kind and left me a comment. I am still learning how to do this blog thing. So I will have to once again have my Mandy walk me through some more. I am not sure how to contact each one of you and tell you thanks for the comments. You all have made my day.
