I summer many of my house plants outdoors. Tree Frogs like to hide in them sometimes and this gives them a ride indoors in the fall. I'm getting better at finding them. They will make noises. I think it was 2 winters ago when a Tree Frog jumped across my desk in Dec(?) I tired not to act too suprized. Just today I was carting my largest Philo. Selloum out and guess what jumped onto my arm from one of the leaves before I even made it outside - yep, a nice healthy looking Tree Frog. Wonder what it eats all that time. Or did it hide in the pot and go dormant?

I'm betting on dormant! That's pretty amazing, though!
