This post is primarily about one of the gardens.
Magoo and I had to inquire where the bathrooms were and we were directed through this garden. When Magoo was done takin' care of business, we noticed a frog in the fish pond. The man who had given us bathroom directions said, back in the garden, there were a whole bunch of young frogs and one still had his long tail. We went back and found them - and sure enough - long tail. (Which I think amused me much more than Magoo.)
Because we had planned on going to Book Barn Downtown and not here - I didn't have my camera. OH - and these five frogs sunning themselves on a rock where so perfectly placed! It would have been gorgeous! So when the shopping was done, I went back and fetched my Powershot.
The five frogs were gone - of course - but I still got some frog shots.
See them all in the water? They were hard to spot at first - when you you focused in, you could see a ton of them.
Now here's where the story gets a little gory. I think there was a reason those five frogs were no longer sunning themselves. See, I saw this cat laying right here and next to it was a frog - a motionless frog who still had a tail.
I think there was a cat attack. So all the little froggies thought it best to blend into their surroundings. A lesson learned too late for one.
Oh well. Circle of life.
