A surprise visitor

A couple of years ago, we had some potted plants in the back yard. When they were transplanted, a couple of the saucers were inadvertantly left lying on the ground where they accumulated water, dead leaves and the surprise visitor.

“Up high, the flies are playing,
And frolicking, and swaying.
The frog thinks: Dance! I know
You'll end up here below.

Quotation by Wilhelm Busch, a German painter and poet (1832 - 1908)

Cute little visitor, I hope he eats his weight in bugs for you each day!
Raider was afraid of the little frogs at Vicki's farm. They hopped towards him and he jumped backwards!
He's so brave!

We saw a frog yesterday, but he was asleep in the middle of the road. He wasn't as big as your frog - he was kinda flat.

Hi Giz,

We have a resident frog in our backyard also. His name is Mr. Frog. He has shown up for the past three years every summer.

I luv to put my nose right up to his and we just sit there and stare at each other. We have become really good friends.

I think frogs are cute, don't you?

Hope you are having a glorious day!

Luv,
Star.

We have so many frogs and toads that the flowers just ripple from them jumping thru them.
