The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

5 gallon bucket solar shower free loader

green frog close up late spring 2011

This handsome frog has taken up residence in our 5 gallon bucket solar shower drainage area.

I've noticed him for weeks now, but each time I walk by he jumps back into his safe spot under the old pallet.

Today was the first time I got a good look at his features. Anna looked him up and confirmed he's a green frog. It feels like a good omen to have a frog as a neighbor and it gives me a smile everytime I walk by and hear him belly dive back to his mini pond.

You should send that in to Tiny House Blog!! That sure is a small home for a frog his size. :) There must be a lot of love around your parts for him to be content there.
