Kind of cute, huh? This is the first one we got. Of course it's just decoration only, not an actual functional house for a real froggy. That's silly.
Here's the other one with the little green sign. That sign should help guide a frog to the house, huh? Who are we kidding. Who thought this stuff up?
Look close...there's the frog. FOR REAL! Within a few weeks of putting the first house in our garden, we had a frog living in it! You can't really tell from this picture but there are actually two frogs. One is very little hiding behind this frog. I would have tried to get a better shot of it but we didn't want to scare the frogs so we quickly put the house back down on it. Now, I don't know what the life cycle is of a frog but there has been a frog in at least one of those houses every single summer since we put them in. Sometimes, each house has a frog. So, either this is an 8 year old frog or this house has been sold to new owners several times over in the last eight years. In the evenings, we see one or two frogs on our front porch...eating bugs I assume... which is fine with me.
There they are...in our little froggy subdivision. If some crafty person out there can figure out a way to make a really cute one that looks a little more vintage, I would copy it and add more homes to this unique little residential area. Who knew they really worked?
