...on their walls, that is!
For the Round Robin Challenge: On the Wall, I had the rather romantic, overly optimistic notion that I could show you a photo of a real live lizard on the side of a wall, possibly even the large, colorful one I saw climbing a wall at church a few weeks ago. Alas, none of the live lizards I've seen since that day were on walls. Fences, but not walls!
But this morning as I walked through my neighborhood, I saw lots of fake lizards on lots of walls. It quite a common motif around here. And I do have an old photo of a live lizard on our back wall, so I'm throwing him in here for comparison.
Even more common than stylized lizards on the fronts of Tucson homes are terra cotta or ceramic suns. Here are a few of the many found in my neighborhood, Terra Del Sol. That means "Land of the Sun." Appropriate, no? Even though it did rain a little bit today.
There are lots of other bits of decor hanging on brick walls (and a few wooden ones) near my home. Here are some of them.
I have a completely different category of things on neighbors' walls I'd like to show you, but I'll put that in a separate post. Meanwhile, let's check out what other Robins found on walls!
