I have a little green tree frog on my front veranda....

Hey I am back, was about to water my poor pansies tonight after 3 days of heat & what did I find but a BABY green tree frog, so I think Horace may be a girl who is now called Pansy! If you look very closely in the hanging pot where the water goes you can just see her/him? The other photo is of Dad I think! So hows that I have a little family thing going on here. Have to go, another big storm coming in!

I really love my front veranda, it is the place where I sit when its raining, have my endless cups of coffee, read & watch the world go by! I am so grateful that I have this very special place! Lately I have been having visits from the cutest little green tree frog I have ever seen. The first time I saw him he was in my watering can, I was watering my plants at the time & he gave me quite a fright. The next time he was sitting on the bottom shelf of my cane table, just looking up at me. He has visited several times since then & suddenly he just disappeared! Last night when I sat out there to catch the breeze, it had been a hot day, I looked down & there he was on the floor! I don't know why but this little guy really calms me, so I have named him Horacio, Horace for short.... Anyway here is a cute photo of him!

Ok so where would we be without our daughters? Over the last 3 days I have lost 2 nose studs, the second being my last. I have a thing about my nose studs, the last 2 were pure gold & cost me an arm & a leg so to say I was not happy to loose them is putting it very mildly. My darlin' Taska also has her nose pierced but she had slept over at a friends place last night, there for it was panic stations until she arrived home, luckily for me quite early this morning, & lucky again that she had 1 spare one! Now I keep touching it to make sure it is still in there!

My darlin' hubby has got over his hangover & is spending the day at our #2 sons house helping him put up the roof over his new entertainment area. So there goes what was on the to do list for another day, never mind it will still be there tomorrow or the next day or the next.

Well thats about me for now, will add a couple of photos of my front veranda for you's though they are not the best!

Ok so how come they are all the way up there when I wanted them down here??? (photos I mean)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

Hah!!! I have a little green frog with "spiked hair" sitting on my computer monitor and he travels with us on the car dashboard to keep an eye on Love Bunny's driving!! He's the one that "back seat drives" so I'm relieved of the task, sweet chickee!! Such a relief not having to tell hubs how to drive when Froggie does it for me...whew..... LOL

Done the nose piercing thing...liked it but when I changed it got a lump so I took it out.
The froggy visitors are sort of cute.
Your front porch is lovely....I would stay too, the frogs are lucky.
