Lavender Fields

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  The video I have selected for this post is entitled "Lavender Fields." There are some beautiful paintings by Jean-Marc Janiaczyk in this clip.  Enjoy!

The photo I am sharing today is one that I took on a nature park walk last summer.  There were some frogs in a pond but unfortunately I was unable to photograph them, as they were too fast for me and dove into the water when they saw me coming.  Fortunately this nature park had an indoor segment with flowers and plants...and a few aquariums.  I got to photograph a frog in one of the aquariums.  You just need to click on the image to see a larger view.

Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  8. Hugh has a frog in our outside pond, and he is way too fast for me to get a photo either. Leap Frog, is the word so true. Lovely lavender fields, I can almost smell their perfume. Cheers, Jean.

  13. I wonder if the frog is holding so still because he thinks if he does, you won't see him? :-)

  22. That's one handsome frog! I know people who farm lavender and other flowers. I think living at their farm would be heaven.

    Great photo of the Frog. I love frogs and agree they are hard to get pictures of.

  29. Because of all the rain we've had in the U.K this season, lavender crops and tea have flourished.
    A fine looking frog Linda
