This first picture is for Woli to show her how beautiful the water lily she purchased is. It is a very lovely peachy color and bloomed magnificently!
Now, the true purchase of this post. We have frogs--everywhere!! With the new fence around the pond, Holly's hunting grounds have been closed and the frogs and tadpoles are rejoicing. :o)
In the picture above, there is a little green frog against the bricks to the left of the lily. This little green frog has become quite bold in the past few days, sunning himself on the lily pads and resting in the shade of the bricks. Some days we will see him in the water with only his eyes and nose poking out. He is quite sweet and makes me smile every time I see him. In fact, I find myself scanning the water for him the minute I reach the pond!
This evening as we were walking Nana and Pop out, we discovered green tree frogs--EVERYWHERE! They were all over the house and we had an incredible time watching them walk from place to place. Yes, walk, not hop. Those sticky pads on their "finger tips" are pretty nifty to watch in action. :o)
Isn't this one so sweet? I wish the picture were crisper. Oh, well.
This guy was hanging out on the window so Brien ran in the house as quickly as possible to get a photo of his tummy. These little frogs really lifted my spirits this evening and left me wondering which was Hannah. :o)
