Frog Break

I realized last night that I need to get my county fair entries ready to submit this weekend.  Yikes!  So I'm scurrying to get just a few tatted items finished and ready to go.  Nothing too fancy, but I'd really like to keep entering what tatting I can, since it has historically been so scarce at the fair. 

I had to take a little break tonite and get outside though - we have had record-breaking heat and humidity this week, and today was back to a normal summer temperature of about 85 F.  Finally, a beautiful summer day - and weeding was calling me once again.  (Stupid weeds love that humidity!)

We have these teeny-tiny little frogs outside.  They are everywhere!  Barely as big as my pinky nail, a couple of them made it all the way up onto my living room window - about 20 feet in the air.  Peeping frogs! 

They are cute, but they sure made me jump when they jumped from flower to flower as I was weeding.  (Cute as they are, I don't want them to TOUCH me.  Ick!)  I had to get the camera last night though - I just had to get some pictures of them in the lilies.  Arent' they cute?

Back to thinking about fair entries rather than frogs :)

Stay cool!


  1. They're sort of cute for amphibians. Interesting anyway! Good luck at the fair!!!

  2. They are cute on the flowers - on the window, not so much! Good luck with your fair preparations!

    My word verification is "desist" - I hope I haven't been TOO much of a bother!

  3. I used to play with these frogs that lived near a stream beside our house when I was five! There were lots of bulrushes growing there as well. I have not seen them since as the area was subdivided and the stream destroyed. Thanks for the wonderful memory!

    Good luck at the Fair!

  4. Thanks so much for sharing your frog pictures. I've rarely seen tree frogs. We had a full grown one get in the house one summer when we lived in a very shady house in the country. The only time I've seen the tiny ones was when my daughters were given some tadpoles that had been rescued from a swimming pool that was being prepared for summer use. I love to hear them in the trees at night.

  5. Such tiny jumpers! (Folks from the UK will think I am talking about sweaters, hee hee.)

  6. What cuties! I'm happy to just look at them too. :-)

  7. p.s. I LOVE your froggie collage! The colours are glorious and your frogs have such character. It is really good - good enough to blow up and frame and hang in someone's room! The little ones might love it!

Thanks for your thoughts - I read and appreciate every one!
