Froggie Friday...is what I'm calling today, because I'm still stranded at work (I know, overtime-boo hoo!), and my brain is mush, so no post with, y'know, words and stuff. Enjoy these little slippery buddies, if you can see them all......







Now, on to the weekend! Yabba Dabba Doo!!!

You have so many different kinds of frogs, Lisa! We sometimes hear what sounds like frogs at night but have never seen them, let alone caught such cool photos.

Hope your weekend is a good one.

I'm astonished!

Are frogs annuals in Wisconsin?

I love frogs. Aren't they fun? I don't have many in this house, but the last place was near a retention pond and frogs were everywhere. Little green frogs would cover the front door and the collective croak was deafening!

Thanks Annie!

Chuck-That's funny...as a matter of fact they ARE kinda "annuals", although they're around all winter, just underground. (Hmm...so since they return, I guess they're perennials!)

Wicked Gardener-Yea, I never get tired of them hanging around the door at night, and their songs definately don't get old. Of course, their presence brings in snakes as well, but luckily I don't mind them, either.

Awww... awww... awww... :) I have a soft spot for froggies.

I'm amazed soft, wet little creatures like that can survive your winter. I could see their eggs surviving. Do they hibernate or something? And how do they get 'underground'?

Don't know much 'bout frogs.

Kim-Me too! My affinity for them began as a kid, they used to get stuck in the window-wells of our basement, and I felt so triumphant rescuing them.

Chuck-From what I understand, they burrow underground and hibernate for the winter. The wood frog (seen in the basket in the first picture), actually freezes solid every winter!

Love the frogs. Always have. They are one of my totem animals in native indian belief. Their purpose is to moisten the path upon which we walk on. Pretty cool.

Happy gardening, BOB

lisa said...

Thanks Bob, I'd never heard of that before...I sure hope they aren't sacrificed to moisten our path!
