A get-well frog!
Under the weather, under the covers, under the wheels of a bus.....
Many thanks to reader Dahlink for this: A Get Well Frog.
We gardeners have to stick together. Warts and all.
Here is her getwellfrog message:
I was working in the garden this afternoon and decided to take a moment to look at the pond (and straighten my back!) Usually frogs jump into the water when people approach, but this frog climbed out of the pond. He is a green frog, "Rana clamitans," also known as the bronze frog. Most of ours are green and/or bronze, but look at the very blue face on this one! It is a male--look at the large tympanum, larger than the eye.We have one other frog who is a little hysterical this season. When we approach the pond we hear "plop plop plop," but one frog sometimes goes "EEEEK!"Thanks, Dahlink! Nothing like a frog to make you feel like jumping back in the game!
