Take a frog, a fence, some flowers, some fun and some low carb food

Absolutely nothing to do with diabetes, recipes, important news etc ...
but I thought this was such a fantastic photo, I just had to share it!

Shut your trap! Cheeky chameleon silences frog
Chameleon holds noisy frog's mouth shut

"A noisy frog got on a chameleon's nerves so much he walked along a branch and held his mouth to shut him up.

Photographer, Dr. Savas Sener, spotted that the tree frog got in a spat with a Mediterranean chameleon before the amphibian hushed it up with its hand.

The frog is a European tree frog, a widespread species native in Turkey, as well as Russia, Iberia, Sweden, and Denmark."

Wish I had taken this photograph I just think it's lovely.
What do you think?

Yes, I may have used this photograph of the grand-children before ...
but whatever the time of year, you can have so much fun on the beach
Wouldn't you agree?

Food glorious low carb food

350g chicken fillet roughly cut into cubes
little olive oil for use in frying pan
salt, pepper and mixed herbs to taste
4 chestnut mushrooms stuffed with cream cheese
selection of green vegetables - broccoli, green beans, peas
chicken stock

How I prepared and cooked this chicken meal for two,
(but you can obviously change amounts to suit your requirements)
please see here

Hope you've enjoyed this mix,
Happy Sunday

All the best Jan

Hi Jan
Guess I didn't realize there were several writers on this blog, but I've figured that out now! Love the photo of the grands, the cute chameleon with the frog and wish that fence were running along our sidewalk. Gorgeous, isn't it? My dream would be to have a white picket fence with an arbour and a path leading to the front door. However, during winter the sidewalk plow would have the fence ripped out after the first snowfall - their driving is atrocious. :-)

Wishing you Happy Mother's Day, Jan. Loved the frog picture. Yes, I enjoy a little of this and a little of that. They are my favorite posts. :)

The chicken recipe sounds yummy... chicken is the main reason I wouldn't want to be a vegetarian. Oh and who could say no to cheese...I love it xox

I adore the cute picture of you and your grandchild... I agree the beach is awesome anytime of the year ♡

The frog with chameleon is one of those once in a lifetime shots that's for sure, so cool. Yes I do love the fence covered in flowers, just brings a smile to my face!! Your grandkids out on the beach is just too cute, anytime they can be out in the fresh air is a good thing!!

I was running out of the other flat stones. The first is a path to the water spigot. More transplanted hostas are in the corner, along with some ferns (most of them still hidden, just planted as tubers).
