Nature's Place

The thought had crossed my mind. To assume authority and arrange the tenants of the garden to suit my designs – we’re all tenants here after all. But I really don’t like to interfere, so much.

With the frogs scattering throughout the (admittedly) small but wildly welcoming garden, and the amaryllis such a short flowering plant or bulb, why not catch a frog and pose it on a big red flower before they’re (both) gone?

Why not? Well, it begs the question, where does that kind of interference stop. I don’t mind moving some back or foreground element, or even move an entire scene if possible, if it’s also possible to return it to original position.

But hunting down a frog to manhandle it into a place and position it probably wouldn’t settle in and would probably require repeated resettling, in a tight small garden it’s hard to navigate without breaking things. Too much ado all round for my liking.

Then early last night I popped out to have a look, as I often do, and there she (or he) was, a lovely green tree frog sitting on the big dark red amaryllis.

    Realy magnificant shots of this little frog and how lucky you spotted him (or her).
    Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day Mark.

      Thanks Rudi. If I’m not present it didn’t happen, whatever ‘it’ is.

      Indeed, forever unfolding as what presents in sense.
