Garden rearrangement

I thought the garden might have attained its final shape, but realised that the frangipani is probably shading the mussaendas too much now that it’s all grown up. The white mussaendas seemed to be happier in the frangipani shade than the pink ones, so I’ve left them there and moved the pink ones off to the walls — and suddenly there’s space again! Hopefully they’ll stop growing straggly to reach light now and get on with flowering.

Also, I’m pretty sure our lizard is a chameleon. It looks just like this one. Haven’t seen it with its colour changed — but I guess that’s the point!

More lizard

Saw the little lizard again — I guess it’s the same one. Pics are through the window. It looked so cute standing up like Godzilla.

A New Year Visitor

Went outside this morning and found this delightful little serpent in a tree. Neighbours say it isn’t dangerous. I think it’s an Asian vine snake (Ahaetulla prasina). Mildly venomous but not considered a threat to humans.
