I spent about 5 hours in the garden this morning (gone are the days were I could spend 8 or 9 hours gardening) and I have the sore muscles to show for it! But, as I tell my husband, this is good sore. I was puttering in the shade garden, near my fading voodoo lilies (Dracnunculus vulgaris) and saw a strange mass on one of the fading spathes. I reached out to touch it, but stopped when I realized it was this cute frog! It is amazing what you find when you look.
Happy garden discoveries!
