Lizards in the Garden

Not our garden, but the lovely gardens at the château de la Châtonnière.

This Common Wall Lizard Podarcis muralis or Lézard des murailles (below) posed on a garden seat for photos before jumping agilely into the yew hedge behind.
Simon's keen eyes spotted this sub-adult Western Green Lizard Lacerta bilineata or Lézard vert occidental (below) lurking at the back of a flower bed, blending in with all the greenery.
