Frog and Flowers
This morning I saw a frog in Max's water bowl. It's been dry lately and he was looking for some water to soak in. Seeing the frog in the water bowl didn't surprise me at all, it happens all the time during summer months. Usually the frog lives underneath the water bowl and will come out to soak in the water whenever it feels like it.
This is a Plumeria that I grew from a cutting. You may recognize this flower if you've ever been to Hawaii, this is the flower used for leis. I've got my Plumeria growing in a pot and it can't be left outside when its cold. It's a hassle moving it in the shed when a cold night comes along. Then, in the morning, I have to move it back in the sun and then back in the shed at night. It's worth it for the flowers.
The above picture is new flowers that will open in a few days.
