Frog on a bed of moss


For the French out there, this is not a recipe for cuisses de grenouilles, just a photo of my pond. A lovely handsome frog enjoying the very last bit of sunshine on a soft bed of moss before the weather changes. We are expecting cool weather and high winds, so I guess that’s it. I covered the tortoise up in the grass heap and put the garden furniture away today. The heating is on and the pond and garden will soon be much quieter.

    Happy Winter, Tortoise 🙂 The frog looks very contented. How do I know what a contented frog looks like? I don’t! But I imagine this one is.

      I agree. It does look content. The tortoise will stay in the grass until the frosts arrive and then she’ll go in her box for the winter. It’s one of those events that marks the passing of the year. I always think of when I will be getting her out again and looking forward to spring.

      Pretty old. I was given her over thirty years ago, and she was a sad case with a big hole in the top of her shell, and she was quite a mature girl then. She recovered well and we’ve been together ever since. I expect I will pass her on to my children to look after, as she shows every sign of going on for years to come.

    I tried to photograph a frog the other day, but he would not keep still! Definitely a chill in the air now.
