the frog in one of my front flower beds. Love the umbrella!

In 2005 and 2006, Bill and I stayed at a Bed & Breakfast place out in Kelowna, BC. The place had incredible landscaping all along a hill; it was lush with flowers, shrubs, and perennials, and right beside our room along the patio was a little pond, replete with frogs.

We loved those frogs and decided to add them when we designed ours. Well, it's taken a lot of trial and error, but the yard is coming along fine and so are the frogs. Pictured is my latest aquisition. He hangs out near the Asiatic Lilies, but gets extra shade from an umbrella.


  1. I have had one real frog in my garden for one season but I think my cat ate him. Too bad because he used to chirp under my bedroom window.
    I now have a few fake ones in the garden.
    Glad to see you are back and I hope things continue to pick up for you.

  2. Thank you, Ladies!
    Lori - love the soothing sounds of the frogs!

  3. Very cute frog with that umbrella. My aunt and uncle have a very large collection of frogs. Seems that everywhere they travel in their ministry, they come back with another frog of sorts. Enjoy your summer!

  4. Does that frog scare aware the bunnies from your Asiatic lily? Our pesky yard bunnies whittled down my lily to the stalk. Ick. But a cute frog you have! :-)
