You May Pass Frogs Looking For Roses!

"We may pass violets looking for roses..." Or you may pass frogs looking for roses! ( see the little green frog clinging to the lower petal?)
Look,not one, or two, but THREE frogs in the rose!These two frogs are snuggled into the upper petals. How did three frogs come to gather in one rose?
"How cunningly nature hides every wrinkle of her in conceivable antiquity under roses and violets, and morning dew." Ralph Waldo Emerson
And here is another sitting on the outer sill of the big picture window. At dusk I often see three or more of these little green frogs climbing the window trying to snatch bugs attracted to the lights inside the house.~It isn't easy being green on a white window sill. See the little frog peeking out of the petal on the left?It had stuck its' head out further , but when I approached with the camera it ducked back in. "One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon-instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today." ( and the frogs in them ) Dale Carnegie
Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend, enjoy the roses and the frogs!

When I think I've seen everything, I found out I haven't! I don't think we have those around here. I see an occasional toad in the garden, but these are much cuter.

So tiny they must be, for three to cling to the same rose! Beautiful photos and lovely quotes.

You have a very keen eye. The photos are wonderful.

The contrast in color, green to pink, is beautiful. Nature!

I cannot imagine hiding in a rose bloom. Amazing!

Your pictures are special. I would love to see those frogs in the garden. Occasionally, I do see one on the wall at night but never that kind of frog or that many at once. I heard once that the disappearance of frogs is the first sign of an unhealthy, polluted environment, so it reassures me when I see them. Thanks for sharing your pictures. Have a great weekend!

That is just tooooo cute! Animals..even frogs have such interesting ways of showing themselves to us! I wonder if they thought out their strategy?
Thanks for having your camera ready and sharing your frogs!!

I checked the rose today and the lower petal has fallen off, so alas, no perch for one frog. But the 2 frogs on the upper petals are still there! Kind of reminds me of the 'Thumbelina' stories.

I think it is so cute that those little frogs found an usual place to get some moisture and coolness-and one that smells so beautiful.

Karen said...
