‘Bluey’

Eastern Blue-Tongued Lizard or Skink (Tiliqua scincoides scincoides), a welcome garden visitor, happy to munch a few snails.

Pigface

Must be the season for flowers. Known as Pigface this little plant grows on the sandunes. It tolerates being  blasted by salt spray, covered in sand, is apparently edible and can relieve inspect bites. Think we could give it a nicer name.
