September Garden - Where's The Frog?
My mum says these are "autumn crocuses". They are pretty and sometimes the frogs hide under those stones, but I didn't find any there today.
We have ten of these yellow gladioli in flower. But this doesn't look like a good place to find frogs - it's too far from the pond.
The pyracantha is covered in orange berries now. The Greedy Pigeons eat them but I don't think frogs eat berries. Better look somewhere else. These are the green peppers. My mum has grown lots of peppers this year. Once I actually found a frog hiding under the peppers, so I always check here now.
This is a butternut squash plant, but my mum and dad call it The Triffid, because it is trying to take over the entire garden. I'd better check under those big leaves, because frogs could be hiding under there...
WAIT A MINUTE! I see you, Mr. Froggy! Wait till I get my sharp claws into you...oh, wait, my mum finished clipping my claws yesterday...drat.
Huh. I don't care, I'll just go to Opus and Roscoe's party instead...see you there!
We don't thinks we have that Lemsip stuff here in the US. Do you know if it's like TheraFlu?(Mom says that's lemon flavored too).
We wish we had froggies to hunt. They look tasty and just enough of a challenge to be fun to catch!
