Frog in the birdhouse…

…shame on you.

Ok, I didn’t think I had anything to post today…well, I actually have tons, but I was going to be lazy until I got a burst of adrenaline just now.

I was outside bringing in my houseplants. It’s going to get really cold Sunday night or Monday. So, I grabbed a decorative birdhouse, thinking I may as well put it away, too.

I sort of shook the house to make sure no wasps were inside. Then I took it inside and opened the closet door and reached waaaay up to put it on a shelf.

I started shrieking before I even realized I was shrieking. A treefrog was hanging halfway out of the upper opening of the birdhouse.

When I finally stopped shrieking and then laughing I handed the house to Aaron so I could take a picture. Of course, froggie went back in before I could get the pic of him dangling in front of my face.

I decided the birdhouse can stay outside. So after setting it by the front door I took this picture…

You can just see froggie peering out the bottom door this time. What a hoot!

    How funny! It’s humbling to be so startled by something that you shriek like a little girl!

    LOL! I would love to have seen that. I love the pictures you have of the froggie peaking out of the window!

    Glad it was not a humongous spider!

  8. Awww! Cute little froggie!

    Years ago I was washing my face in the sink in the bathroom at my grandmother’s farmhouse, when this tiny frog suddenly peeped out at me from the overflow drain. I was so startled I bonked my head against the faucet and cut open my scalp. I probably freaked out both the frog and my grandma with all the blood running down my head.

      Oh my gosh!!! I remember a cricket coming out of the overflow drain once, but thankfully I didn’t bump my head on anything!

    Very artistic birdhouse Lauri……our tree frogs are green here…..some small and cute…others large squishy ones that get their kicks out of hiding in toilet cisterns and going for water slides every time you flush.

    (I’d’ve screeched and run)
