A Recent Guest to the Pond for SOOTCS

A recent guest to the pond has been a leopard frog.   We have several green frogs that have stayed throughout the summer.  As this is the first year of our pond we do not know what the frogs will do when the winter comes.  We have enjoyed watching them.  My husband has been finding the odd cricket for them as well.

I can’t take credit for this photo.  My husband took it with the telephoto lens.

That's a great pic of a sweet frog. I was amazed in my own pond how the frogs moved right in. If you allow some mud to accumulate at the bottom of the pond, the frogs will dig themselves in and are actually frozen til the next spring. Apparently they have a sort of antifreeze chemical that allows them to survive this way.

Quite a visitor, just relaxing in the sun! Beautiful shot!
Well this great photo came at the right time Val - I thought I had leopard frogs too but the spots are not are distinctive. After checking my frog poster from the CWF I believe I have mink frogs; a cozy family of 3.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
