What is it? Guessing game in the garden

5 clues: horned, footwear, skin, lounge, Komodo. These words have ONE subject in common. What is it?

Name that object. While most are content to simply display what's going on in their gardens, *I* feel the need to make a game out of mine. Why? Because I am somewhat of a trivia nut, or at least I like taxing my brain with things other than 'What in the world am I going to make for dinner tonight?' This could become a regular feature at l'Orto blog but for now let's just say that perhaps we'll end up going out for pizza after all. To reveal what's behind the question mark, click on the image. No cheating!!

Average daytime temperature: 11°C / 52°F


  1. YAY Maddie! Give her time, she'll soon learn to grab them around the middle instead of by the tail - then let the fun begin!

  2. What? They're already awake in Italy? They aren't out of hibernation yet here in Nevada.

  3. It's always good to see a lizard - it means warm weather! It's a pity, though, about this one's tail. It will grow another one, I hope.

  4. Amber - they've been skittling all over the place. And they are huge!

    Chaiselounge - that thought made me smile. I don't mind them at all even if the westie thinks they're snackfood. Yech!

  5. How big are they, Rowena? Ours our just little fellas - maybe 4" including tail (when they still have them).

  6. Fern - they are huge! From head to tail they can grow up to 7-8 inches. So far only Maddie has an interest in them, not so much the doxie.
