The other little guys are just some cute ceramics I have that I add to my arrangements as well.

So ok, show us your frogs! This ought to be interesting! Come come hop to it!! They can be of any breed!! Any type, stuffed or like the one here that is spiked!

I tried finding a thread here on them, but to no avail so if I missed it I am so sorry, please someone add the link!

Well, now I am awake!! The frogs are chirpping and we are starting to see our frog parents come back to life!!

Isnt this guy a beauty!! Hes a little leopard froggie! Pretty soon if all goes right in the bog here, we should have bunches of these and other species hopping here!

Now that reminds me, I want to look something up. I want to learn more about frogs,, their life in the pond. from egg to, swimming to hopping! How long it takes and such So I went to Wikepedia..

Heres their thread... pretty cool!

Great website! I added it to my favorites so I can read more later.
We not only have the little guys, we have Bull frogs too. They give a short eek when you startle them, then it startles me! LOL! I had one scream at me one time, it was in the yard and I was using a shovel to kind of help it along out of the yard and it sounded like a woman screaming. It was so funny to hear such a large frog scream like that. They're about the size of an open hand, sometimes larger.

Ribbet ribbet!! LOL! We also have toads and bulls!

The bulls sound like a loud old oboe out in the bog! What a chorus! Some are screaming, some are chirping some are oboe oooboee! Natures symphany!

We also have snakes and last year I caught a little tiny worm snake trying ot eat a big frog that no way was that snake able to consume, but he had a gripe on the poor frogs toe and woudl not realease him. I had to sepearate the two and eeeks how I hate snakes! I sure wished now I had a camera on me then because it was however kind of funny to see that little snake no bigger than a worm trying to bite off more than he could chew too! Frog legs, many parts are edible, but not for you!

Ribbet Ribbet Ooooh-booe chirp scream!!

BB, ROFLMBO!!! You are so funny! I know what you mean about the bulls. We have at least 50 or more bull tadpoles in our pond every yr. At first they're about the size of a quarter and by the time their legs emerge they're about the size of a dollar coin (the old one's). And where they go from here is beyond me. A few stay and grow up, but the others just disappear. I have however found at least 2 large one's flattened on the road. I think they try to cross at night and get run over. There was one last yr that was crossing the road during the day and these 2 on coming cars came along, I thought for sure it was a goner. The car that was in the same lane as the frog, stopped and waited for the on coming car to go by, then he went around the frog. That was that frogs lucky day!

Ribbet Ribbet Hurum Hurum Chirp Chirp Scream!!

We got lucky one year here and we were out in our woods just in time for the frog exodus. As we were hiking in our woods all of a sudden the ground came alive literally with ga-trillions of froglettes that just left the pond to higher ground. It was amazing. They were all the size of a quarter and as far as the eye could see! We had a hard time walking because there were so many of them and they were boinking all about and across your boots and up the pant legs! Totally awesone. and not something you get to see every day. And you just did not know which way to turn because the ground was so thick with them you would almost step on one or two if they were not so quick!

Im glad they were not snakes!! NOT FOND OF SNAKES at all! Them critters always gotta hole up in my garden pots and scare the bee-Ms out of me too. Frogs, I love, snakes booo hiss.

CHIIIIRRRRP! Ribbet OOOOB-OOOOOOOOO- HURRRRM

Beats a rattle hands down! Or one slithering thing falling out of a tree on you when your hiking.. e-YUK! Now them things will make you ...well..


you know...

Well, Kermit here started out in some sewing shop in China, came over via some boat and some how landed off the semi on a pile of flowers in our shopping cart when we adopted him and his girlfriend at the local farm store. He has been in every state east of the Mississipi and half of Canada, been to Missouri, Iowa, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas . He's past signs showing for this way to Morrocco, Paris, London, Cuba even stopped in Paris and London! He's been making his rounds...





And yep, been down to meet some hometoad horntoads down in Texas. He thinks Laredo is cool!!! Even though its hot! They stopped him at the border of Mexico though. He did not have their greencard and could not ribbet in spanish! Check out them prickly pears there!! Whoohoo! Sorry the pic a bit dim, but it was a dark day.

We will see what the tide and the morrow will bring. Not too many folks there are laughing and seen some already evacuating. Will know in a day or so if FEMA is invited.

It was especially hard as Indy was the last of seven dogs that belonged to her mom who passed in 2004. I have been there...it is the hardest thing I have ever had to do,,,don't look forward to going there again.

Well, my daughter is all moved and starting to get the house semi livable... she has free rein with the yard, which basically has nothing but a couple of really nice Rosemary Plants, Yeah!!! and a lot of D^$N Ivy that needs to ripped out...that is going to be a job...but she is looking forward to getting plan and plant pretty much what she wants...should be a fun summer...Sage, my granddaughter got to meet the little boy next door today so she has someone to play with now...so things are beginning to settle down and get back to normal.

Rain coming in Saturday and warming up again so should be hearing our little peepers soon...I love to listen to them. When mom moves her Wandering Jew from inside to the garage wall one usually moves in...I have a rack of umbrellas outside my front door...and last year one spent a great deal of time hiding in my umbrellas...grabbed an umbrella and put it in the car cause the weather looked wet, like never to have caught the little guy to get him out of the car...would not have been a good ploace for him!!

Here is my bog! Actually the bog is shared ground. It is a peice of protected wetland in Illinois! It is home to some rare plants and animals. Here EVERYTHING IS PROTECTED BY LAW. You cannot disturb the vegetation, like digging plants out from it or trespass on parts. The conservation portion owned by the state will not allow horses trapsing on it, there is no hunting, no firearms, no ATV's allowed, no fishing, no dumping, etc.

The big dairy farm adjoining was willed to the State to add to it...the only part I didn't like about that was the wonderful old Farmhouse and Huge barns that have just been allowed to fall apart since then.

Well there are different kinds of wetlands which some are protected and some are what they call buffers, some are farmable wetlands and then there are places like mine that are rare and have a special eco system of their own.

Farmers today have to watch out where they are doing what and you just cannot DUMP manure on certain areas without violating a regulation of some description if you are not careful. Most farmers are, but you have a certain mentality of city farmers that come in and they think they can come onto a property and DO anythign they want and get away with it.. NOT TRUE. Unless you got some screwups on the boards that protect those areas.

Our bog is part of 50 acres in the entire state of Illinois that is this special ecosystem. Now you got to be a fool or plain stooopid to be dumping manure near where it is protected because you could cause severe consequences to the bog. Now I would hate to be the guy caught doing so. Can you imagine the fines? Some people are just such plain idiots and careless what they do because its all about them and no one else. How selfish can that be?

Go back up and read that other sign again.. very carefully in what is prohibited...then read this one. Particularly the bottom line.

This is cute! A friend sent it to me !

Its called "FROG WISDOM"

Thought it was worth sharing!
------

Frog Wisdom:

Once upon a time there was a bunch of tiny frogs... who arranged a running competition. The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower. A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants... The race began... Honestly: No one in the crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower. You heard statements such as: "Oh, WAY too difficult!!" "They will NEVER make it to the top." or: "Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!" The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one... Except for those, who in a fresh tempo, were climbing higher and higher.. The crowd continued to yell, "It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!" More tiny frogs got tired and gave up...

But ONE continued higher and higher and higher... This one wouldn't give up! At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower. Except for the one tiny frog who, after a big effort, was the only one who reached the top! THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it? A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal? It turned out... That the winner was DEAF!!!!

The wisdom of this story is: Never listen to other people's tendencies to be negative or pessimistic...because they take your most wonderful dreams and wishes away from you -- the ones you have in your heart! Always think of the power words have. Because everything you hear and read will affect your actions! Therefore: ALWAYS be... POSITIVE! And above all: Be DEAF when people tell YOU that you cannot fulfill your dreams!
