We found this baby lizard in the house just inside the front door. We photographed it and released it back into the front garden.

In the afternoon I saw a baby lizard in the same spot, quite possibly the same individual, eaten by a mockingbird.

These Callistemon around the border of Edison Park will be planted, based on their size and regular arrangement. Scattered along the sides nearby San Gabriel River are plenty of wild juvenile and adult Callistemon, at least some of which are likely the offspring of these Edison Park plants.
