A Stroll in the Garden

Frog in a little pond can be much happier than fish in a vast ocean! -Mehmet Murat ildan

 

“We think too small, like the frog at the bottom of the well. He thinks the sky is only as big as the top of the well. If he surfaced, he would have an entirely different view.” – Mao Zedong

“Winter will pass, the days will lengthen, the ice will melt in the pasture pond. The song sparrow will return and sing, the frogs will awake, the warm wind will blow again. All these sights and sounds and smells will be yours to enjoy, Wilbur—this lovely world, these precious days…” – E.B. White

Hubby’s Walk in the Garden

“It was such a spring day as breathes into a man an ineffable yearning, a painful sweetness, a longing that makes him stand motionless, looking at the leaves or grass, and fling out his arms to embrace he knows not what.”
–  John Galsworthy

Hubby took his little pocket camera out to the garden and I thought I would share a few of his finds with you.

This little fella was very willing to pose.

He is only about 2 inches in size, and oh, so cute!

Lots of his friends and relatives live here, and I am happy to see them!

These photos are all of the same little guy; I just couldn’t decide which pose to share, so I’m sharing several.

All things seem possible in May.”

The next photo looks like Autumn, but it is indeed a red maple in spring.

And the bees are happily buzzing and gathering around the allium.
