Gray Treefrog under dish strainer

Gray Treefrog on the sink

This ultra cute Gray Treefrog showed up today for a visit.

I looked around the sink area and found a gap I forgot about when we brought our gray water line into the trailer after burying it last year.

Is there a connection between Gray Treefrogs and gray water? I don't think so.

Since I suspect someone will ask why we're bringing graywater into the trailer --- we're not. Mark uses that term as shorthand for the creek water that we use for non-potable purposes like cooking. You can read more about our system here.

It's frog time around here. I woke up with one in my bed Sunday morning. They eat a lot of bugs but I had to ask it to move on as I'm just not that way about frogs.
