My little tenant...

This little tree frog has lived on my deck in a jumbo flower pot for the last 3 years. Today he is hanging in the cup holder in the cooler lid like it is his own little swimming pool. I am a bit concerned because this summer I have not had one single frog or toad in my built in pool. Every year I pull at least a dozen of them out each day, but this year there have been none! This is sad to me because I know that the amphibians are a good marker for what is happening with the enviroment. There were not even any tadpoles in the pools cover when we took it off at the beginning of the summer.....I am sad.
