Wordless Wednesday: Kermit

As I sit here in the dark, listening to the raindrops on the roof, I can hear the call of the frogs in the garden pond. This sound reminds me of the fun we had on the North coast of NSW this Christmas, frog hunting!! It seems as though my big girl, flash has not escaped her genetic legacy of science and is simply fascinated by the great big green frogs. She even tried to set up breeding 'buckets' for them!. However, I wasn't so impressed with the poisonous pest of a cane toad that has now invaded my childhood home!






For Wordless Wednesday, I'm sharing with My Little Drummer Boys, Sakura Haruka and Tina's pic story

  8. Our last boy loves frogs! He goes out hunting for them, and puts them into buckets as his "Pets" - he reckons they rock! Can see how your daughter would love how to go hunting with our son!

  10. I'm with you, I hate the cane toads (they totally gross me out) but love our green friends! I love the first photo; love how you can see the detail right down to his toes (do we call them toes??!?!)

    1. Thanks Kate. It was a little ironic that my project as a scientist at the CSIRO was to rare cane toads in the lab for study.....

  15. That frog is enormous - we have them in our toilets at the farm - not so much fun when you need to twinkle in a hurry.
