Gorgeous leopard frog!

Gorgeous leopard frog!

No doubt taking a rest from the heat, the dry dry wind and the longest day of the year!  We’re having to fill bird baths, frog watering dishes, the bee-beach*, and other watering holes daily. So many birds, butterflies and creatures need water bad about now around here as we’ve had no rain here at Larrapin for a long while.

Be sure to keep your waterers full and fresh and make sure some are on the ground for frogs like this one and those cute toads that are your garden’s friends. For ideas and tips on watering, here’s a previous post on easy ways to water: http://ozarksalive.org/larrapin/?p=910

  1. A beautiful reminder, Leigh. And what a great picture of the leopard frog. Now, I’m going to keep my eyes open for one around here!

    • Great to hear from you Jan! I love keeping up with your writing adventures on FB and your blog. I love the leopard frogs though they frequently scare me by suddenly LEAPING out of the garden bed I’ve just kneeled down beside!! Thanks so much for the comment!
