Peek-A-Boo

Look who surprised me while I harvested my lettuce in one of my garden containers. As I started to cut this lettuce out he popped – some kind of a tree frog perhaps? He also looks like he’s shedding his skin!

June 6thΒ – I think my little guest is a Cope’s Gray Tree Fog. They have a solid lime green colored back and he definitely does. Very common all over the state of Michigan!

I immediately went to the other side of this long container and harvested the rest of the lettuce. By the time I finished he was back in the pot and “peeking at me” as if to say “please let me stay”. Of course I said “yes”Β  πŸ™‚ See his sweet little eyes in the middle of the picture, peeking at me?

Wouldn’t you love a salad with all this beautiful lettuce?

Gardening can be fun even if you have a small balcony/patio and only have a container garden. I posted some new pictures in My 2018 Michigan Container Garden. My dill plant had a butterfly visit not too long ago and now the eggs have hatched and I have about (8) 3/8-inch caterpillars. Of course I am going to leave them alone to munch on my dill… I got a great picture but I have to admit they are kind of ugly at this stage πŸ™‚

My garden adventures have changed over the years from a small garden in my first condo; then a huge 40×120′ garden and also a pumpkin and corn patch; then to 1 acre of all kinds of flowers, some veggies, herbs and edible flowers and finally to my current condo where I have a roomy container garden on my deck. It is only June 1st but I am enjoying all my visitors and reaping the benefits even in a small garden.

    • Thanks Ronit – I felt the same way. He probably thought I didn’t see him – oh how I love Mother Nature πŸ™‚ I wanted to get a better picture of him “peeking” at me but I knew he was scared so only took the one – a little blurry but you get the idea!

    • He is pretty cool Diann – he startled me at first and then when I saw him “peeking” at me (like I didn’t see him) I just left him alone. I still have not gone back to check if he is still there πŸ™‚
