Our World - Yard critters

The squirrels have been very active this fall, collecting and eating acorns.


The ground hog usually stays in the farmer's field near the entrance to his under ground home. Found him checking out our yard two weeks ago.

While blowing leaves out of the jonquil bed, I spotted this whitish blob on the windblown leaves. Looking closer, I found it peering back at me. So I got my camera and here are the images. It was not much larger than a quarter.

Love your little tree frog. :) I had never seen a frog like that until we moved out to the home we currently live in. I see them quite frequently here.
