A Few Of My Favorite Frogs

Take a tour of my gardens and meet a few of my favorite frogs.........This is my fat, happy frog. He lives here in the old hollow log and guards the flowers large and small.
This guy jumped into my old sewer pipe and holds old glory to greet everyone who passes by.

Old Rusty Frog stands sentry at the garden that leads into my private residence. I can't decide whether to give him a fresh coat of paint or let his rusty patina take over. I think I like him just the way he is.


Another rusty guy trumpets his welcome. You can see him as you head around the main building to the pool. He likes to nestle in among the marigolds. I think they compliment each other well.

This old girl sits happily in the same garden on the way to the pool. When the path lights come on at night you would almost be convinced that she is about to hop up.

One of my solar powered trio of frog musicians sits by one of my stumps waiting for her cue to begin to serenade. Over her shoulder looks like a little guy hopped int my stump.
Fellow frog musician has his horn at the ready, also waiting for that cue...........

Last, but not least is another flute player dancing with the lilies.
I guess you can tell I like frogs. They make me smile with their whimsical faces. Some of them are gifts and some I couldn't resist........they must have been on sale, cause everybody knows I love a good clearance!

I love your frogs and your gardens. I like the rusty frog, he looks good with that nice tarnished patina. Thanks for the tour, everything is just beautiful. Your garden shows love.

I like them. I have a variety of things but they are scattered between both houses lately.

I love the frogs! Leave the rusty one as is! I've never seen the kind that are solar powered like that. Those look so cool. Your flower beds look well tended.

I have a friend that loves frogs so much, her vanity plate says FRGLVR.

I made her a painting that is a frog saying, "Welcome to our Pad." I will have to make another one sometime soon for you.

So cute. I wish I could garden like you. Looks so nice. I love the log and the stump too.

I'm glad to hear you're improving! I haven't had a headache since I started the antihistamines, knock on wood, (other than one real migraine with aura, but those aren't going anywhere no matter what I do). So hopefully this is the answer! Weird to live to 27 and not know I had allergies... although maybe they're new? I don't know if that's a possibility or not.

How cute! I'm surprised they haven't hopped away in the back of someone's camper though!
