Company in the shower

Sometimes we forget that our houses are not impermeable, and that we have built them smack-bang in the middle of various habitats, so it's good to have a reminder from time to time of why we should be looking after the Earth in whatever small ways we can. My reminder came yesterday, when I found I was sharing my shower with a little friend. I got out, wrapped myself in towel, took a few happy snaps, rewet my hands, and then, gently gently gently, coaxed him onto my hand and took him back outside. Dear little Southern Brown Tree Frog, I hope you find our yard safe to stay in.

Sweet post. Once lived near a meadow that meant falling asleep each night to a grand chorus of tree frogs. It was magical.

So cute! Plant lovers should be life lovers too.

Thanks for the story.

Aw. I always think frogs are so cute. I always have anoles in my house, and its more of a frantic struggle to get them into a cup or something before the cat sees them ... then its all over.
