This Week’s Favorite Thing:
I’ve been meaning to get to this post for a while. I absolutely, positively, most assuredly LOVE all things amphibian. Back in my reenacting days – I would scoop them up and carry them around with me for hours. My dad’s nickname for me as a child was Froggy.
When I first moved to The Fabulous Frost Farm – I quickly confirmed that my home was a mecca to a plethora of fine amphibians! We have plenty of toads – which happen to be a favorite of mine. They hang out in the rock pile near my bbq and the dogs go nuts over them. Funny enough, they all look to me to capture them and bring them to safety. Neither Harley nor Molly actually make any attempt to catch one on their own. It’s fun to watch our good ol’ American Toads change color when they sit on the spigots outside or rub up against our house. Most of all, my favorite thing in the world is being serenaded by the melodious hum of the Northern Gray Tree frogs and The New Jersey Chorus frogs. Their funny yet sweet mating calls always remind me summer is right around the corner – or in July’s case – to be mindful that summer is here.
What are some of your favorite things? Are you like me – do you like insects and amphibians?
