The Great Smoky Mountains (Land of the Blue Smoke) the indians used to say…. from my driveway in Tennessee near the Foothills Parkway, a senic drive where views over the entire face of the TN valley can be seen. GSMNP – Thunderhead Mountains are pictured on my site from my home. .Photo of my garden of trees and schrubs with mountain backdrop, .and the lizard habitat …view other entries for lizard documentations, and study of them from here. ….Anolis Carolinensis Lizards are the only green anole native to the USA and tropics….there are about 9 other species of lizards in the Smokies. 5 lined red headed lizards that get about a foot long live here too…..blue tail skinks, and others. Feeding the birds and landscaping, and watergardening got it all started.
