My froggy loves to rock
I went out to the lemon tree the other night and collected a nice bunch of lemons to add to the fish I was cooking for dinner. When I went to pick one off the bunch I found a Sweet Hitchhiker. He was having a lovely nap on the bench.
For those interested in frogs – and I know you ALL are. This is an Eastern Dwarf Tree Frog (Litoria fallax).
I carefully returned him to the lemon tree and continued cooking.
After dinner I sat at the bar to enjoy a nice glass of wine, but something odd began to happen – my music kept getting louder. I used the remote to turn it down and it got louder again. I turned it down again and it got louder again and so forth ad nauseum….
I went over to take a closer look (was it the wine or a ghost?)…
…it was neither. It was my green visitor ready to party. He had plonked himself on the Volume button.
Dave Matthews Band was his favourite.
We battled over the volume – me with the remote and him with his constant wriggling and bopping. It was like having the kids home again.
I left the window open and he was gone by morning, probably bleary eyed, tired and content from his Big Night Out at the RUC.
