Nocturnal

 This little 1" tree frog is pretty common around here-they hunker down in the plants all day 
and come out to 'sing' at night.
 Today, Abigail spotted this large guy-2 1/2" of tree frog and spotted!
 He was very relaxed about his photo shoot!
The little one is called a Squirrel Tree frog and the larger is called a Barking Tree frog!
So now we all learned something!
While they are nocturnal, I am not even though my best knitting time
 has become the hour before bedtime!
It's a good thing these mittens are so symmetrical so I can memorize the pattern for each row!  
I have to get knitting--I had hoped to send these home with my daughter so Bruce would have this completed pair while they still have winter!
(I had worried the mittens wouldn't fit but my daughter tried them on
 and assured me they are spot on!  Phew!)
This is a short and sweet visit so I had better get knitting.....!

  1. It's hard to believe that you have frogs romping about. FL is really a magical place!

  2. We have tree frogs here, but they are really elusive. In all my 40 years, I've only ever come across one (and I've spent a lot of time outdoors). I was a kid, and it climbed up our big livingroom window one night.

  4. Frogs and mittens - love them all!! I love listening to frogs at night. Though, it will be a bit of time before we hear them here in PA!

  6. too cold still for frogs, I'd say they need another month or so here... but not cold enough for woolly mittens:) they look good though - and if they're not needed for this year - the next winter will come!!

  7. I didn't know they had names. LOL I've only ever seen the all green ones and Cuban Tree frogs (which are invasive).

Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

Blast Off!

 What a day-busy yet very enjoyable! A woman my daughter's age and her young son came for a visit; Ethan and he are very close in...
