“C’mon in, tea’s almost ready.”

“Pull up a leaf.”

“The Thompsons are going to be late, but that just means an extra crumpet for us!” [Slurps eyeball]

    Oh, he is so beautiful! Want to scritch him between the eyes!

  2. fish eye no miko says:

    Awwwwww! Soooo cute!
    I know I say this a lot, but: More lizards and fish and stuff, please!

  3. Throw some mayo in that leaf, and you’ve got a carb-free wrap! *ducks*

  4. You’re smart to duck, Carol, ‘cuz I’m Barfing Rainbows over this little cutie!

  5. Oh, I LOVE the colors in the photo — but not nearly as much as the inquisitive tilt of the little fellow’s head.

  6. YES! I second what fish eye no miko said! More things with scales!

    What? Tea with no witty hover text? That’s like cookies with no milk! Okay, but incomplete…..

  8. “‘Ello! …
    “Come inside, meet the missus! …’ave a nice cuppa tea.”

  9. victoreia says:

    “If she’d kept on going that way, she’d’ve gone straight to that castle!”

    *sigh* I love that movie….

  10. Yes, glitter lizard
    Tell us how the crumpets taste
    When washed down with tea.
    The tea that was imported
    For you especially.
    Tell us now of your famous friends
    And your dangerous enemies.
    And tell us then what you cannot live without,
    Roses, art, bread, or is it civility.
    Make us smile and comment so much
    That we can barely take our tea
    As we listen to your every word
    Your enchanting reptilian repartee’.

  12. How cute is that tiny little head sticking out of that huge leaf?

  13. Wow, what a beautiful face!
