We've been experiencing heavy rainfall here lately - of course it is only a fraction of the disastrous flooding that is happening up in Queensland, but some of that wet weather is passing through NSW and Victoria currently. One small upside to this unusually wet summer is that one of my neighbours, who up until now was 'heard and not seen', has finally shown his face now that our garden is like a nice big swamp!
Mr. Frog here has a very big voice for such a little fellow - I can hear him croaking outside my room all day and night, asking the ladies to join him in our water feature! I had no idea he was so tiny - just though he hid very well. My sister and I found him sitting on our damp front step the other evening, and I scooped him up gently while asking her to run and get my camera so that I could show my parents (who were out) the source of our noise.
I could still hear croaking, so I went looking to see if Mr. Frog had friends over for once - maybe this one was his girlfriend? She was so unbelievably tiny! I'm going to have to keep my eyes peeled for tadpoles in our fountain now!
P.S. I'm glad the rain has made you happy, little guy, but look what the humidity is doing to my hair!
