...mister tree frog...

what a happy little fellow.
catching the morning sun.
i, however, almost squashed him.
coming out the door with my
morning coffee and camera.
at the last minute i realized.
this was a little creature.
stepped over him wildly.
spilling my coffee.
but not on the camera.
and he then sat proudly for his shadow shot.
none the worse for the encounter.
happy SSS day.
you know what to do.
head to HEY HARRIET.
and have a great day!!!
just BE.
robin.

How funny, I chased a baby toad around the yard last night for a shadow shot, losing the sun in the process...dern it...but as I was doing it, I was struggling with the lawn mower and the idea of a poem about a toad...so I guess all was not lost on the fairy princess and the toad, a memory of my Granny filled my words with promise this AM...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, it's raining here today, we need it so I won't complain...all in a day in the life...thanks for the coffee, glad you missed the camera!

Hey Tilda, have a wonderful barefoot weekend!

He almost looks like he's smilling over the fact that he's now a shadow shots star.... or is it because he made you spill your coffee?!

we used to get little frogs around our old willow tree - it is one of the few things we miss from our old house.

He was probably waiting for his cup of coffee in the sun, cute little fellow that he is, and you had to spill it! Still, he looks very forgiving and I think there's even a smile there.

Jumpy shadows!

His face is so sweet, and I especially love how his little front feet are tucked in like a sleeping cat. So tiny!

Hey Harriet said...
