oh you hairy beast, you

you-hairy-beastLEST YOU THINK I SPEND TOO MUCH TIME ALONE, digging holes out back then running in to blog about it, be assured I have plenty of company. Including several dozen affectionate amphibian types like this deliciously hairy beast, who lets me cop the occasional feel.

    @Erika: Welcome to A Way to Garden (and sorry to ruin your morning caffeine infusion). I just love my frog boys, and really cannot control myself around them.
    @Paige: I will discuss chickens with Jack, promise. As for how the frogs allow my advances, not quite sure. It’s as if they think that I do not really see them even when I’m holding them, they stay so incredibly still…like maybe I won’t notice that there’s a frog in the handful of duckweed if they just act like statues.

    Okay, do you have a method for controlling that duck weed? My frogs are looking like relatives of yours! Balancing the camera while holding ‘hairball’ must have been a challenge.

    Welcome, Brian G., to A Way to Garden. Yes, snakes…some years more than others, and sometimes in the house (yuck). Is there a big stone slab at the back door, or any rock wall nearby? Their favorite haunts. I would never hurt one but they do make me shiver.

    @Brian: Now that you mention carnivorous creatures, I will reveal that my bullfrogs catch and eat mice, too. True! Maybe I could post a photo, but some people would freak, I think. I have documented it…an unbelievable sight. Shiver bigtime.

  5. Brian G. says:

    Are you on equally familiar terms with the snakes? My house is in Eastern Columbia County and I have snakes up the, well you get my drift. They LOVE to congregate at my back door for some reason. Harmless, but I’d rather have frogs.

  6. Brian G. says:

    Thanks for the welcome, happy to be here. It is a particularly warm corner of the house but I think the actual reason they choose this spot as their hang out is the abundance of baby chipmunks and mice. Shiver indeed!

    Our neighbors maintain a small pond and I can hear those “croakers a’croakin'” in the evening… actually a very pleasant and bucolic sound.

    oooo, cute friend you got there. My little pond has lots of frog citizens too. They are much more entertaining than fish. I like that some have gotten so used to me that I have to shoo them away when I want to work where they are sitting.
