this is what they looked like when I saved them. I had to feed them and take care of them so they grew up bigger to look like this.

they looked more like a lizard than a frog then but I still loved them anyway. with even more feeding and care they grew up. then I had to let them go. when I did this is what they looked like.

My Elusive Frogs, part II
by: Anonymous

It is almost July, and I am worrying. I haven't seen a sign of a toad or frog in my garden. My garden is full of things frogs like, so I am perplexed. It is time to go on a toad/frog hunt.

My tree frogs are still eluding me. Chirping and making me look like an idiot, peering up downspouts and craning my neck while on tiptoes to see if they are under the roof eaves. My garden is lush, and it hides me to some degree. That may be why the neighbor hasn't called in the little men in white coats to take me to the funny farm, wherever that is. Wherever it is, I hope frogs are there.
