I hope you all have a great St. Patrick’s Day and that you’ve got something fun planned later that involves at least one pint of Guinness! Franklyn the Frog has started his celebrations already…
Heaven knows what state he’s likely to be in by the time I finish work and get to join him in the garden!
Here’s Franklyn with his cousin Fernando doing a bit of sun basking earlier today.
Though I have to say that being tropical forest frogs (Fernando is a Red Eyed Tree Frog and Franklyn is an Australian Green Tree Frog) they have certainly been enjoying the record levels of rain during their vacation to the UK. They never got used to the icy temperatures though and couldn’t wait to get out and warm up their cold blood with a bit of sun after all those gray skies. Hopefully the sunshine and mild temperatures we’ve been having in recent days are going to last a bit longer yet (please!). I keep eyeing the sunny patches of my garden enviously and hoping I’ll get to enjoy some sunshiny St. Patrick’s day shenanigans with my little green friends later on. But if the weather takes a turn for the worst I might take them to the pub instead, if Franklyn is still sober enough to hop that is!!
Enjoy your celebrations!

He’s such a cutie! And his cousin, too. Perfect for St. Pattie’s.
