    I don't have the green anoles either, but I have lots of brown ones. I love them. Lizards eat bugs and mosquitoes so I will put them all over my house. But all my plants die or get stolen. Every potted plant someone has taken from me. They were the ones my mom, who passed away started for me, green jade tree, Christmas Cactus, pineapple,aloe, all good size and someone stole them. The olive shrubs, I have never heard of those, do they bear any fruit? I also had a hummingbird feeder but ants are the only thing that it saw. Never saw a hummingbird and I am in Bradenton Florida, near the coast.

    oh my goodness, they took ur potted plants! That is hard especially from ur deceased mom's. Tea Olive shrubs do not bear fruits but flowers that smell sooooo nice and privacy as "fence" for my yard. I do know my former classmate that lives in ur town. Hope to visit her next year there and will go to butterfly farm there.
