Wildlife

The flora and fauna around my home!

We have a new visitor to our yard. A little mouse! Actually, he's a pretty fat mouse. I've never really seen any mice or rats in our yard before (although my sister swears she has) so it's a little odd. I chased him all over before I was able to get these pictures:
Then I discovered a small house plant that has somehow escaped his pot! Last year I had a bunch of potted plants that thrived for a short time before they all died horrific deaths due to extreme weather and my lack of interest. Or so I thought. Apparently this little guy managed to thwart my amazing plant-killing powers. I'm trying to decide if I should chance moving him (so he won't be run over my the lawn mower) or letting him continue to live in this dangerous little plot of land.
Then we have this enormous frog. I came outside the other night and was so amazed by his size I had to take a picture. You may not be able to tell from the photo, but his forearms are HUGE!
I named him Biggie.And of course, Buddy watches it all.....
