But what better to blog about than nature! Ari the Canine Naturalist and her friend Kathryn http://outwithari.blogspot.com/ did a nice write up on the Peepers that are breaking eardrums throughout the northeast this time of year. Now this is no peeper but believe me this bullfrog has plenty of peeper friends in my pond. I've noticed plenty frog eggs in the pond popping up everywhere. Of all the amphibians the gray tree frog has to be my favorite. I'm already hearing a few out there. I'll never forget the year one made its home on our deck out back. Each evening (or even during the day if I ran the hose) we would hear him calling out for a mate. He became something of a pet as he would greet us every morning by the slider door. When we realized he was enjoying all the bugs by the light there, we decided to leave it on at night for his pleasure. As the days grew shorter and nights cooler I would tend to bring in a couple of my potted annuals with the chance of frost. What a surprise I had more than once to find my buddy the tree frog had hitched a ride in on the pot to spend a warm evening in the house! Ain't nature grand!
