tree (frog) house

A tree frog has taken up residence in the old cracked birdhouse out back. Because it’s cracked, the birds no longer use it, and I could replace it (I have a new one in the basement) but it seems wrong to entice birds to nest in the Land of Naughty Kitten.

And so, this frog has his own castle. And the way he sat there all day yesterday, guarding the place, made me laugh.


Later, after running around doing errands, I got home just in time to sit outside at dusk and enjoy the beautiful weather. And there was another tree frog, a green one, sitting on the arm of the chair right next to me. He didn’t move when I sat down, and only moved a little when Naughty Kitten rubbed my calves on his way by.

Apparently it’s the year of the frog.


The weather has changed finally, it feels like for good, and my beautiful mess is starting to offer more beauty than mess.


Happy Mother’s Day to my mom, and to all of us—because we are all mothers in one way or another—and to Mother Nature herself.

Let’s take good care of each other.

    Such a perfect image. Such a good idea also; I’ve used cracked flower pots for toad houses, but never thought about those weathered birdhouses that are too beautiful to discard. Have a lovely mothers’ day.

    I really enjoy your connection with nature, and how you take the time to observe it.
