It looks like Jack is Jacquie


Checking up in one of our books I found that Jack looks more like a female than a male and a ‘common frog’ at that, though rather a large one.
This morning I rustled some leaves hoping to get a glimpse of dear little ‘Jack’ to shew my daughter and granddaughter. They were very thrilled to get the honour of an immediate response and she stayed in full view displaying herself for quite a while. In fact we were the ones to walk away because Jan had only called in to take Olivia back home after she had been through the house cleaning, dusting and polishing. Wonderful to have such a caring family.

Roy thinks a better name for our froggie friend would be Jill.

Later, I went over to his/her playground again and found the little bowl being used. Wasn’t that a nice reward? I am glad I put it there yesterday – one of those spur of the moment actions. I have also found several more frogs/toads to choose from in another book but cannot make up my mind. Anyone able to help with this identity crisis? (I know it isn’t a Gardening question – but….)

We’ve noticed several more plants looking the worse for wear. What is it with me? I can’t make pastry either when I am unwell.

Off for a lie down with a cold flannel.

Before you ask – on my forehead.

That's so nice to see how much your bowl of stones and water is being appreciated. Your question does have a garden theme, so that's fine.

We have a Jacque on GoY, so maybe it would be confusing if her name was similar to a frog, so perhaps choose Jill, or Kermitta ? Lol.

You could always call her Jillijack. She is a cute little froggie whatever her name. Glad to see she is using her own private bathing pool.
I hope you are feelilng a little better now you have had your lie down with a cold flannel. :o)

I have frogs living in my compost heap, (Mr & Mrs. according to Holly) They look about the same so I'm assuming them to be the common kind as well.
It seems my compost heap is becoming a bit of an hotel as I have just discovered there is also a mouse nest, several ant nests and a bee's nest. LOL

Great blog and lovely photo's Lyn.
