Count me in. Outdoor. I have lost two really neat frogs over the last few years due to weather and clumsiness. Whimsical or real is all the same to me. Well, maybe whimsical is my favorite.

Being impatient to get our buddies names seems to be the norm in swaps. Imagine if the people in charge of countries could get so excited about giving and recieving surprises. World Peace would break out. This is only my second swap, but I loved the first one so much, I couldn't wait to be able to be in another one. By buying great things for someone else we don't have to feel guilty and then we get a box of our own filled with things that someone else couldn't resist, way better than getting it for myself.

We have some neat frogs but they really aren't made for outdoors. I got a huge one a few years ago, about 18" high and 2' long. But he was made of some sort of foam stuff then painted. He peeled and got all yukky looking.

I am here. Dallas is 8 hours from here, so we are safe and sound!
Dallas was hit pretty hard, but the news reports say no one was killed, and all injuries were minor! Looks like HE was watching over everyone!

I have a feeling I'm going to have to go buy some other froggies for my buddy- the ones I've been keeping ready are now packed in one of about 15 boxes ready for the move on the 21st! Not good timing on my part LOL..

Oh well, I'll just save them for NEXT year's froggie swap :)

You know, I check every store I go into and there are not a lot of frogs up here. Specially not for outdoors. But at least I know where they are for anyone who wants 'indoor whimsy'

Funny how some of us can find lots of frogs, and others can't find them. You can always order online?

I'm hoping there will be more real live frogs returning to my garden this year.
They sure can reduce the bug population.

Just starting to refill and put water feature on..sooo love the sound of water movement...came across a few froggies, they looked me in the eye as though to say, what have you done..they'll appreciate a nice home..I now smell like a swamp lady..about another hour of work and I'm calling it a day..perhapsmi'll do the smaller pond in the mornimg and have the yucky work behind me..

Will look for the solar froggies later and take photo's..they are so adorable lit at night and you can add the frogs singing nearby...

Can't you tell I'm anxious to get the yard tidies up??

Break is over, guess I should find a bit more energy and finish big pond completely...then a long soak to rid myself of the stench. Lol

Hope ou are enjoying your day!

I hear the frogs at night here, but they haven't made their way to my house yet. I did disturb a little one who was snuggled under the dirt when I was weeding. As it gets more into spring, I have to net froggies out of my pool nearly everyday. And some times several! It's ok with me if they stop at the edge of the pool.

Gosh Betty!! When I think of Canada I think snow, but here you are cleaning out fish ponds. Big ones too! Here I am in supposedly sunny California freezing. Was up at my mom's this past week, noticed in her 250 gallon pond a very pregnant gold fish. Poor thing she looks like she going to pop. If our weather would start warming she could lay her eggs. I have a 100 gallon water trough filled with pollywogs. Won't be long and we will be hearing croaking.

My neighbor (three kids) and a neighbor's husband (two kids) did our annual hide the Easter eggs thing. 25 with prizes per yard, and about 200 with candy all along the cul de sac. Not as many as you would think as we only have so many families with children. The challenge is doing it in the snow. We had to delay by an hour as the snow was coming down thickly and would have buried the eggs. Some parents come out and we have coffee and donuts in the cul de sac while the kids go nuts in their snowsuits looking for eggs. Kind of nutty but fun. Gotta do what you gotta do, weather not withstanding.

Happy Easter all.

All this talk of moving makes me want a new house. Of coarse, as soon as I stop and think about all the work, the feeling passes. I got the eggs cooked and the kids will color them when their mom gets home from work.
The weather is perfect today. I keep trying to get the energy to get off my kister and get some work done but then I find myself just sitting there looking at what's blooming. LOL.
Happy Easter to everyone. And happy frog hunting.

CONGRATS you two on your new homes! Since I just moved here 2 years ago and LOVE this house, I have no inkling to ever move again!

However...when are the house warmings so we all can converge on your new digs? lol

Easter egg hunting in the snow. Yes, that is quite a visual. :-)

OK, everyone should have a D-mail, with your swap buddy..

Remember, this is a secret swap, so don't say anything to your buddy, till it arrives, and they post photo's.

If you can, take a picture of your froggies before you mail them, as some don't have camera's.

If you have any questions, please let me know in a D-mail.

Thanks and good luck shopping!
