Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

Look who I found inside my Hawes watering can? Ye olde Tree Frog, that’s who!

The crazy thing is, he (she) simply remained there while I emptied the entire contents on my tomatoes and a few other pots. I noticed this little guy when I went to refill it with water. That’s when I let out a little “eek” despite knowing how harmless the little creature was.

FYI: Do you know what happens to frogs during winter in the cold areas of the country? National Geographic has an excellent article “Frogs Freeze and Thaw”.

It seems so totally un-phased considering you have been using the watering can. Maybe it’s meditating? And I really like the contrasting colours of the frog’s skin to the plastic of the can.

I love this, Diane!!
So nicely seen and photographed.
It looks like a wonderful place to hide out! ๐Ÿ™‚

I love the sheen of the green frog against the matte of the gluey-green watering can. Well seen, Diane!

What a sweetie! Had to come and see yours after seeing Michele’s frog on Flickr and your comment there. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m afraid I would have let out a very BIG eek!!! But it is rather cute and looks so cozy in the watering can!
