    Young Caesalpinias

    I lost my crista-galli last winter, both of them. As for the caesalpinia, so the secret is to keep them growing through the winter. ;) Didn't notice they were in the wildlife section.

    Like the gecko, looks like the commoner Moorish and not the Turkish which is slimmer. If only we had more reptiles and amphibians in the uk(they would remove a lot more plant nibbling insects)....
