I have a few old live oaks on my property with philodendrons, bromiliads and orchids growing on or hanging from them.  I love my trees and their twisting branches and the Spanish moss which hangs from them.  Of course they are unaware of history, but I know they are aware of at least the watering they get on a regular basis, which is something that people before me neglected to do.  I'd like to think that they know I care about them, but that just makes me feel better.

Neat patterns Joan, but a lover of going barefoot would have to watch his step. :)

I love hellebores for all the reasons you mention. They self sow and easy to transplant the wee ones. I didn't know they are toxic. I will  wear gloves. We still have snow, but as soon as it is gone, I will cut off last year's leaves, retrieve any babies I want, and enjoy the blossoms until they get covered by leaves about spring equinox. They remain upright, standing proudly, and one has to hunt down in the growth to find any flowers. However, the green is so pretty, I don't mind.

It was hard to make-out, but I guessed lizard.  One of my favorite species as well.

Joan- it is an anole, a very common lizard found here in Florida.

So, we have a very handsome frog to enjoy. Love your photos and stories. 

Spud, your "More hansom than most princes and a lot more beneficial" tickled me .. sadly, handsome and beautiful of face does not always include honorable of character!

About the squirrel formula, I wonder if an edible oil could substitute for Murphy's oil?

When I lived in El Paso, I brought home some wild cactus for my garden. A friend told me tarantulas and scorpions breed in cactus and when the babies get big enough, the cactus will shake and explode. When you wrote about cactus, I Googled cactus + scorpions and this is what I found:
Exploding cactus an urban legend.
