Weekend Plantidote 2012-11-03
hydrangea with pseudacris regilla
hydrangea with Pacific tree frog
Okay, I love my frog friends and this really isn't a Plantidote, it's more of a Petidote. There's really nothing of interest in the garden, unless you want to see my collection of fuchsias which are still blooming their bloody heads off. I was cleaning up the garden and my friends were serenading me. There were 4 of them on the hydrangea, but they looked like little specks when I took the group photo, so I opted for a picture of one of them. I assume he's a tree frog. Maybe somebody can properly identify him?
