Green Frog on the Prairie
When I originally moved to the Farm, I brought many plants from the city. I believe the Green Tree Frog traveled with me in one of my tropical pot plants.
And so, a new home was found for the Green Tree Frog. Because I keep the flower garden very moist, he is able to survive the dry summers on the prairie. The photo above gives you some idea of his size.
Just for fun, I decided to rotate the photo.....
For such a small fella, he has a loud voice. The YouTube will give you some idea of the sounds he makes.
Let's hear about your backyard frogs........"Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit"

When I first saw the picture I must admit I thought it was a plastic frog! Silly me. I think he's lovely and was amazed by the bubble he blows out when calling. Suzy xReplyDelete
The funny thing about him....he never moved, no matter how close I moved the camera to him. But, if he had moved or jumped, it would have scared the life out of me...Delete
Dear Meggie, Of course The green tree frog choose your nice and warm garden to live. He is very clever. I think He knows that where is the most comfortable garden for him.:) You have a big heart for all animal and plant species and also humanity.. Best best wishes from me and also my family..:))ReplyDelete
You are so right, Beck, I love my surroundings. And my frog...loves his life too!Delete
Oh he's beautiful! We have frogs in the pond in the garden. When they were spawning, J used his binoculars and lost count at 25 using the pond for their activities. We had plenty of spawn and now have lots of tadpoles swimming around. We also have frogs in the ponds at the allotment. We love having them around as they eat the slugs!ReplyDelete
He almost doesn't look real. The closer I got, I could see his heart beating. I'm glad to know they eat slugs. I alos have the brown, not so beautiful, frogs. They all do a good job for me. Loved your post today about you uncle and grandfather!Delete
He is a lovely little chap and such an amazing colour! We have toads in our garden - very ugly and dull, but I am very fond of them because of all the good work they do. We have frogs but they are also very dull in colour compared to your handsome tree frog. Last year I had to stop mowing the lawn and help all the little froglets to safer ground. I am constantly amazed by how many little creatures live alongside of us, unnoticed most of the time.ReplyDelete
The color looks like it came straight out of a tube of pigment. That is why he really belongs in a tropical garden. A garden like I had in the city. When I was prunning some shrubs last week end, I found a 3' green snake hanging in the shrub. Needless to say, I moved to another spot!Delete
He is just gorgeous. I love frogs and toads, we havent got any in our garden to my knowledge (apart from an ornamental one!) but at our old garden we used to have quite a few.ReplyDelete
Hi Anne...I bet if you turned a clay pot over, leaving a little space to the outside, a frog would find his way to your garden and his new home.Delete
What a darling little pet! How lucky that it went to a home that could provide the perfect environment for it--it must be in "frog" heaven!ReplyDelete
Frog Heaven it is...plenty of water and tiny bugs to eat.Delete
I'm always in awe of nature's color combinations in plants and wildlife. This little guy is such a beautiful green and your photos make me feel like I was right there experiencing it with you. We have bull frogs on the lake behind us and I can't wait to hear their songs. XOXOReplyDelete
Hi Susan...I have bull frogs down by the stock pond. They are so fun to listen to right after dark...Delete
Ooh my daughter would hate this, she's terrified of frogs. I don't think I mind them, he does look cute...from a distance xxxReplyDelete
My earlier comment seems to have disappeared... it happens. anyway...ReplyDelete
What pretty company in your green house. Fred the toad took up residence on my back porch to the delight of Sassy. She'd stick her nose into planters and sure enough there was Fred burrowed into the soft potter soil. I'd keep them off the porch if Fred decided on an outing. He disappeared just before the drought went into full force and he was almost as big as Sassy's head.
