Frogs!

Really, I try to keep my house clean and we don't leave the doors open but one day a few weeks ago I went into the bathroom and there in my sink was this!

I think this little tree frog came in on a sweater I left on the deck and later put on the bathroom counter. Scared me half to death when he popped out! It took a couple of tries to catch him and put him back outside.

I truly love frogs though, the other picture is of a toad that lives in my greenhouse. I think it is a "she". She has been there all summer and I think it is a good thing. One day before she went into hibernation (in a flower pot) she was sitting near where I was working, I lifted a pot and a thousand legs ran out from under...that toad lapped it up before I could blink! Good Girl! So protect the the toads and frogs, you never know what kind of bad bug they might protect you or your plants from. Now if the frog doesn't attract a snake we will be OK!

As usual, I've spent way too much time on the Internet! As a result I found some great ideas and tips regarding gardening. Below are some cool links!

This one is a free E-book about composting

A Raised Bed with benches! What I wouldn't give for this one.

An eatable edging. I'll probably try this one for sure.

add a comment and tell me what great ideas you have found while surfing the web!

So Easy Recipe!

I saw this on Facebook - I do not bake dessert. Too lazy to spend too much time in the kitchen BUT... I am seriously going to try this one.

Three Ingredient Fruit Cobbler - Frozen Fruit, Cake Mix, and a 7-up 


Place frozen fruit in a baking dish. Add dry cake mix over the top. Pour soda slowly over cake mix. DO NOT stir the cake mix and the soda - this will give you a 'crust'.
Bake 350 for 45-50 min or longer until berries are cooked...that's it...seriously!
