Between full-time work and moonlighting as a food and nutrition writer, there's a little stitching going on.

Garden critters no. 3
While I continue to plug away on patching my aunt's quilt, I have a few more garden critters to share.
I hope you like frogs. Tree frogs, that is.
This guy is about 1.5 inches long. See the suction toes?
I have had two tree frogs living in a cache pot all summer. I removed the inner plant to snap a photo of the most photogenic one. They seem to love living in my pot because it had poor drainage (so they could keep moist), and they were in the shade. But the excess moisture killed a rex begonia early on. Oh, well...I can live with a begonia sacrificed for a tree frog habitat.
And this may be one of the last of the summer butterflies, sunning himself on the lamium groundcover.
