A bright and sunny day

It was a bright, sunny, really warm, day....I hung out a couple loads of clothes.  I took the first load out, and started the second load before I hung the first out.  By the time the I hung the second load out, the first load was almost dry.

I was making a late run to the supper walmart, and ran through the end of the strip pit area.  I paused to snap a pic of the frog above...I did not see the second one till I downloaded the images and looked at them on this computer.  You may need to click and expand the view to see it.
And then this fellow paused long enough for me to take a couple quick pics.
All three photos have been cropped and played with in Picasa.
*****************
As I went to Walmart, I was going through farm country, and saw several farmers working.  But if it had been totally dark, I would have known they were or had been working...the smell of fresh turned soil was strong in the air.  In one area, I could smell where wild onions had been disturbed.  I did not find it an offending smell...

I see both the frogs! Were they croaking? But my fave is the glorious red winged blackbirds. This is what they do here! They perch on top of tall reeds. And if you slow the car down to snap, they fly away!

The smell of fresh-turned soil and wild onions... yup, spring has definitely sprung.
Your frog photo brought back the memory of my grandmother singing "Froggy Went A-Courting"

What amazing frogs. They dwarf the little fellows over here. I love those countryside smells. It's a great time of the year. All the best, Bonny

Ribbitt Ribbitt!!
I like the Red winged Blackbird. It has many songs and one in particular that is very melodious.

Good photos and I loved the smell of fresh turned dirt/farmland too! Also, lined-dried clothes!

Lovely photos, I went back and found the frog after I read what you said. We have the red-wings here and I love to listen to their trill. I love the smell of wild onions.

Two frogs, yay! I love frogs too.

Bethany Carson said...

Oooh, I love listening to the redwings every year! Nice captures.

I actually like the aroma of onions. :) We have an area near where I live that smells like celery right now. ;)
