Q: It seems that there is a very narrow selection of images in VS. Why

I went and saw, to behold creeping things portrayed upon the wall round about...Ezekiel 8: 10

How did the tree frog jump so high
To reach the Pansy hanging basket?
We may ne'er know how or why....
Wished I could have asked it!

Poetry by me AJP

The only thing we could figure out is that he must have crawled up the side of the house and leaped over to the pansy basket from there.. Interestingly, he showed up two days in a row on the hottest days of this summer and rested on the edge of the flower basket both times. This is the first frog we have seen this year...Most of the pansies are gone now so he didn't come to admire the flowers:) The heat index was 111 when I shot this picture which is maybe why he was so cooperative for his picture session...It was too hot to move.

    This is a beautiful photo of the tree frog : ). We have tree frogs in our yard and they can jump surprisingly far! This frog has found a shady spot that it likes.

    He looks comfy. Wonderful entry. We're use to heat like that in Texas, but quite unusual for Wisconsin. Hope it cools off for you soon.
