sleeping frog

there he is, poking his nose out the spout


here he comes, leaping out ...


and looking back, he is not happy. He had such a good place to sleep.


I love the green frogs that live around here, but sometimes they decide to sleep in the wrong place.
Yesterday when I went to use the watering can in the garden, the water wouldn’t come out the rose on the end of it. I knew exactly what was blocking it, so I took the rose off and forced him to come out the spout with water pressure.
In the first photo you can just see him emerging. He took a bit of convincing, but he came out eventually.

Good shot getting him on the move.
I think you should make some small frog houses… maybe a stack of pipes?

there’s lots of them living in the electricity meter. We have to make sure we never close the door tightly. We might even get more if we don’t have snakes here any more. I’ll have to make some high rise apartments for them. Pipes are a great idea.
