Beech Street Gardens Residence

Thought I would give you a look at two of the residence animals that live at Beech Street Gardens. This a photograph of the male (left) and female (right) frog that raised babies in the big water bowl in the back garden. This is the fourth year for tadpoles, but the second year that frogs are now doing the job themselves. They are native Pacific Treefrogs (Hyla regilla). Very charming to have, singing all the time and I mean all the time. Three, four, five o'clock in the morning, no sense of what time of day it is and they don't care. They had business to take care of. I have noticed that the slug population is not as big as it was, I'm sure they have helped with curving that situation. Check into raising native frogs in your area its a great way to pay back nature. The great thing about frogs is they take care of themselves.
