Bella and the frogs





When we lived in California, it seemed that there was an unlimited supply of wild creatures for Isabella to hold. Frogs and toads, chickens, doves, pigeons, lizards, snakes, sea stars and cucumbers, crabs and anemones, giant beetles, butterflies, dragonflies and banana slugs...What an amazing place that was! Now that we are living in Ontario, we do have a creek out behind the property which, before the huge heat wave that affected much of Canada and the US, served as a home to many lovely frog~people. Sadly, it has since completely dried up. That seems to happen every year now...When I was little the creek was much larger and stayed flowing throughout the summers. I used to spend time with neighbourhood friends catching tadpoles, frogs, snails, minnows and crayfish...I hate that things have to change.
At any rate, Jason caught these two frogs for Isabella to pose with at the end of June when the water was still there. She's rather silly! (-;
