I had begun to think that all the frogs had left our area due to the drought, but last night, I caught this one climbing up my kitchen window. He was about 2" long. I love watching them climb with their "suction cup feet"! There was a time when I thought we'd call our house "Frog Hollow" because all summer long they were singing and laying eggs in the pool. If you went out to swim in the dark, you'd have to watch where you stepped because you were sure to mash one or two nearly everywhere you went. Little by little the frogs went away and almost completely disappeared. I was glad to see that at least a few have returned.
Do you have a passion for purple? I loved this color combination in an arrangement I made last week for a rehearsal dinner. It has roses, stock, veronica, boronia and trachellium.
This is the entrance to the barn where the wedding was held last weekend. Isn't that a fancy barn?! That's Rhonda up on the balcony, getting wind-blown and hot-feet. We had to take off our shoes to walk through the living quarters and out to the balcony, which was redwood. It had been baking in the sun all morning, and when we stepped out there barefooted, our tootsies got burnt right away. I was checking the garland we had just hung. Later we evened it out and studded it with hydrangeas, like the garland on the staircase I showed you yesterday, but I didn't get a photo of the finished garland. The whole front yard area was set with cocktail tables and a bar, and the trees were hung with chandeliers. I didn't get a photo of those either - too busy!
I am working the rest of the week, so visits and posting may be sporadic.
