Good Fortune

I love frogs and I hear (through the wonders of a Google search) that I’m not the only one.

In general they are considered to be good luck to have both inside and outside your home.

But, more interestingly, I also hear that the Egyptian goddess of childbirth had a frogs head, and that frogs scare away werewolves.

 

This week I found one treefrog in an empty garbage can, one sitting on a flower in the garden…DSCN4487-(sm)

…one swimming in a rain barrel, one on the sidewalk…DSCN4505-(sm)

…and three catching bugs on the door.

So, if you have an impending childbirth, werewolf problems, or are in need of a bit of good fortune come on over,  we’ve got enough frogs to share!

    Interesting. I was just thinking about the tree frog era and the frog condos we made.

    We have seen an amazing amount of frogs around our house too. They come out of my Autumn Joy Sedums next to the sidewalk after dark.

    Cool! Are they all tree frogs? They look like grey tree frogs? Be careful – their skin secretions will burn your eyes! :/
