Sunshine, Lizards and Digital Cameras!

This is the view from window where I sit typing - not bad is it?! We are very happy in our "little house in the garden". It is full of wildlife at the moment - birds, bats, lizards....
We found these two fighting earlier today. No-one was hurt. They separated and hurtled across
the garden after each other! That time of year I suppose!




Italy isn't exactly that well known for cricket so sometimes you have to make do! Luckily we have alot of bamboo and my son is quite ingenious, hence the bamboo wickets and bat! Just a shame his sister is a little fuzzy on the rules of being second batsman!

It really feels like summer is here, but I don't think we have seen the last of the rain just yet! The nights are still chilly and that serves as a reminder we are not in Spring just yet!

As you may have gathered I have finally got around to downloading my photos from my camera! Not sure why it takes so long to do, as the process itself takes seconds, but there you go and there we are! So be prepared - just got to sort out the formatting now!

Oh to have a garden again! ...At least I've got a decent sized balcony.

I decided I couldn't survive without! It was a quick way to get me back to the UK!

I love the photo with the lizards! Lizards are one of the things I love about where I live. I am glad to see that they're out and about again now that it's springtime.

Cricket...just hope the Italians don't take it up as it'd take a decade or so before they beat England!

What, the way England are playing, don't you mean the other way around?

I love the lizards too...you know primavera is here when the lizards start fighting! I've been wanting to get a shot of one for about a week now, but they move so darn fast ;)

You must be amazingly fast with that camera, Alison, because I've never managed to photograph one of those beautiful little green lizards. Your garden looks lovely, although I couldn't get a big view of it. If I click on the lizards that is a huge and wonderful photo. If you want some tips on uploading photos to your blog email me. Thank you for visiting my blog. Lovely to meet you.

Robyn, hi, thank you! I wouldn't mind some more tips. I'm not happy with picasa, which what I mainly use.
