Tree Frog - No Recipe

We actually got off our unmotivated butts a few weeks ago and did lots of yard work. Trimmed the azaleas, raked, got pine straw off the roof...many things. Once you get started it isn't bad and we could see a definite difference.

One of the tree limbs Doug cut down had a frog in it. We did not see him until we were hauling branches off to the edge of the property.



I saw him/her sitting there and it looked petrified...not the scared version, just a piece of stone. It seemed frozen and rocklike.



You can see how small it is in this photo.



By morning the frog had climbed off up the tree. Probably longing for the branch he had been sitting on.....who knows.

Not a food post (thankfully.....I would feel bad eating this little creature) but I thought it looked interesting. In a Star Wars Yoda kinda way........

If I had been helping you your ears would still be ringing from my scream! Although, I have to admit he is kind of cute. :)

He's a cutie! (do you like how we all say he? If it's a frog, then it must be a he- ha ha).

Not the scared version...LOL!! He does look petrified...is he trying to blend in, ya think!? ;)

He doesn't even look real!! I've never seen a white frog before either (if I saw a white frog here it would be because he's covered in snow). Very cool pic!

I don't know if it was a boy or girl....but I hope the little bugger is in a warm spot now. We are getting low temps in 20s F ( Minus 6 C).

I was hauling away branches like a plow horse; grabbing large pieces and putting my head down, throwing my shoulders into the effort of dragging debris off to the edge of the property. Just about to grab that branch when I saw the frog. Believe me, that was startling! Cool looking...but I was not touching it!!

have never seen one that color - ours are always green, at least the one I can see

The frog changed its color to the same shade as the branch! Obviously good protection.

It's a good feeling when you can get a lot of much needed yard work done.

Stay warm.

We get these guys singing around our pool, which has a fence covered with grapevines, so they hide out there or sometimes up under the poolside table umbrella. They are loud, but oh so cute.

Just wanted to let you know that the Presto Pasta Nights roundup is up and running. Thank you for sending in your stroganoff recipe.

It snowed in Tylertown, Mississippi !
