Poor wee thing was hiding, or sleeping maybe, under some leaves in a pot.

Hi J! I actually picked it up with a handful of leaves... and dropped it again really quickly! I've missed them (except for the noise - that is) x

You're brave!It must be great to see all the familiar wild life in your garden after being away for so long.Did you get the card?

I know that there's one there, J...but I don't know how to open it! :(

I think so too, Paul! :))

It was a bit odd, Scottish...I picked it up and dropped it...then went back to get my camera...and it was still there...

...I'm sure it can't be well - I'll have to check on it...

Watch this space!!!!

Oooh! It's still there...and it's alive (lethargic, tho')...

Did I disturb a tree frog hibernation, do you think ???

No! Imagine if it did - and N came home to find a handsome prince in residence!!! lol! ;)

He might mistake Apollo for "him" !!!!Then you'd be in trouble!!

Doesn't bear thinking about, J....lol!

Never seen one of these before,Karen..it's a big b.....r isn't it ? I like it,in a strange kind of way Lol.

Oh, Bloomer - it's a tiny wee green thing (about an inch long), which you hear (but hardly ever see) - and keeps you awake in the summer!

I didn't really like touching it, tho'...and...I'll definitely not be kissing it! lol!

27 Apr, 2012

 

I like it Karen, are these the ones that make swampy noises when you are on holiday? Kiss it and see, could be big, handsome, garden intelligent and beat the c**p out of your neighbour!!!!!

Ah,zoomed in ,or' macro'ed him then? no wonder it looks scared !

27 Apr, 2012

 

Oo, law, law ,law, law, law, law...you are such a bad influence, Annie...as if I need encouragement......??

Btw, yes they are...but, how do I get all his mates on his/our side? lol!

27 Apr, 2012

 

I don't think he's well/awake, Bloomer- probably why he didn't run (hop/slither) away...

that is my avatar frog!
they are just loving all this rain here at the moment and being very noisy while they are having fun all night long.

Hi Resi, I find it really funny when the chorus is in full voice...and then they hear you coming and stop all at once...then, after about a minute, all start up again. And then you discover that there's only about four of them! lol! :)

have you heard them serenading from the inside of a bottle? they know the best ways to get their girls is lots of noise, something with a lot of echo

30 Apr, 2012

 

Lol! No, I haven't experienced that yet, Resi. There aren't so many of them at this house. Lots of ordinary frogs in the pond, though - all staking out their own lily pads as they emerge.
