Was It A Bird...Or Is It A.....Frog???

Jack and I have multiple bird feeders in the front yard - in fact our front yard is mainly birdseed "grass"  LOL.  We love to watch them feed - even the squirrels keep us entertained.  Yesterday we were standing out on the driveway and along the herb garden in front of the house is a small fence covered with Carolina Jessamine - so pretty in the spring with all of the tiny yellow flowers blooming.  I saw something on top of one of the fence posts and thought - DARN THOSE BIRDS - if you know what I mean.  LOL  As I got closer I realized it was the most beautiful tiny frog - black and white.  It looked like a primitive crackled frog and it was just sitting on that tiny little fencepost with it's front feet crossed like it was praying.  Since I can always use an extra prayer or two I imagined it was deep in meditation.  I'm not sure how exactly he hopped up there or when he left, but it was a special beautiful piece of nature that made my day.



  1. Jill, I have never seen anything like that. Amazing! He does look like he's crackled. WOW!



  2. Love the frog, Jill. As for birds, well, I'm not a lover of them....long story connected with that statement!! Anyway, I've always loved frogs and that one is adorable.

    Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a comment, Blogger, however, decided who's comments they would allow to be accepted and posted...I'm beginning to hate blogger!! Had another friend that had a similar problem and he's moved his blog somewhere else. Oh well...what's a person to do...bleh.

    Just letting you know that Flat Betty is finally moved in and is loving her notoriety!! LOL

    Have a great week and take care.


  3. Simply beautifully captured shot...lovely!

  4. Hi Jill,

    Thanks for having left a comment on my blog during the One World One Heart event. Maybe you want to check out my Oktoberfest giveaway (still open until October 2nd). It would be nice to welcome you back to my blog.

    Thanks also for your other comments -- and that great book list. :)

    Greetings from Munich, Germany,

  5. Love his crackle coat. :)

    Have a blessed weekend.

  6. I've never seen such a thing...

    I'm constantly amazed that God has a purpose for every single thing He has created~

    True for you,too, my friend...


  7. Jill - love the frog and am in agreement, I think s/he's praying as well!

  8. Thanks for visiting my blog so I could stop by - loved this post. The frog reminded me of how I would paint it and "age" it if I could - I am accused of painting anything that holds still long enough. I love his little hands!

    thanks for sharing,
    elizabeth :-)


I'd love to hear what you think.
