I love geckos. We have them all over the house, and enjoy their kissing noises in the evening. They are considered good luck, and since they eat bugs and are cute, we are happy to have them living with us!
They like to run around at night, and in the morning we have evidence of where they’ve been! They like to hang out above one of my kitchen counters (yes, it get’s cleaned first thing in the morning) and on the curved hood above my range. I need to get the ladder and wipe that down at least every couple of weeks.
But they do their job – we have very few mosquitoes here and I rarely see an ant or a fly. The other day I turned on a ceiling fan and one must have been resting on the blade – he fell off right in front of me and I think we were both frightened!
We have two lights in our courtyard that have become home for a group of geckos. They hang out there all night, waiting for the unwary bug to be attracted to the light – and then – it’s dinner!
Baby geckos have been everywhere for the last few weeks. I like the one poking its nose out from under the light pictured below.
I apologize for not blogging much lately – we have had construction in the house and I have been sewing and reading a lot. Snowbirds are arriving back in town and the art and social whirl is getting going…so there is a lot going on, just not much that seemed worth sharing. See you soon!
