OT: Weather too cold for little green friends

kaboehm (zone 9a, TX USA)February 12, 2011

No photos, but this morning I was taking the trash can to the street, and lying in the lid was a little anole. I can't call him "green" because he was a very dull brown. It was 24 degrees F out and little guy was so cold he could hardly move! I picked him up and he barely raised his head. I took him to my outdoors entryway, where there is a heat lamp warming lots of plants, and gently laid him on the soil of a big pot with an amaryllis bulb in it. When I checked a few minutes later, he was looking better, and when I went to "pet" him, he repositioned himself to get more light. Later, I saw him sitting on a leaf all green and perky!! I know he appreciated the help...and will repay me by eating lots of bugs!

Your little story made me feel good. Its little things like that that keep us gardeners thrilled with the whole experience. Gardens are about "Life".
