more lizard stuff i'm afraid

i should change the title of this blog to something relating to lizards. what's going on? my sister and i were out the back the other day and i was watering and topped up the pond a bit. i saw a pear shape covered with duck weed and thought nothing of it. bit of branch or plant fallen it, nothing to worry about. then i noticed it had developed a 'head'. oh dear. sure enough it was a lizard. still alive. fallen in the pond and not able to escape because of the stones overhanging the edge. poor thing. i got some long handled kitchen utensils and scooped it up onto the stones. we should move it into the sun said my sister. so we got a basket from inside and i scooped it up again and put it in the sun. it was pretty inactive and a bit bloated as you can imagine. we took it into the park to warm up and decided to check on it later which we did. it was gone so hopefully it's ok. then .... i was sitting outside on tuesday night having a coffee and some grapes and looking around for lizards as is my habit just in case. area is covered with pebbles and pavers so lots of leaf litter etc. lovely place for lizards/wildlife. nothing noted so i just sat there for a while and then i looked over to the shed and there it was. it was peeping out from under the door where it's damaged (the shed door, not the lizard). didn't come out and didn't run back into the shed. just looked out. how strange. next morning it was there again and i noticed it on and off most of the day sitting outside the shed sunning itself. it moved around a bit, not going too far from the shed. in the afternoon it disappeared again and i haven't seen it since. now the question on my lips is ..... is it the same lizard? i didn't get close enough to notice if it had any duck weed on it. it was the same size. i wonder ??? i will definitely blog about something besides lizards next time. promise lol
