I must say this fellow is a rather happy chap. Look at that smile! I'm not sure how long he will have that grin on his face though. I put this little fellow, and two of his buddies, out onto the dark, wet soil under the vine and weed growth around the pool house after Vincent had netted them from the hazy depths of the cement pond. ( Margaret has removed the pool cover in order to prepare the pool for summer. ) I hope they will be able to make it to a place they can survive. I believe these are Bull Frogs: they need more water to survive in, and around, than little toads do.
Sophia was not too appreciative of the frogs beauty. Cohen was a little more open to an introduction.
I need to credit these photographs to Vincent Messina...Sophia and Cohen's dad. Toni, their mom, is in the pictures holding Cohen and it is my hand holding Mr. Frog.

Sophia obliges me in my request to push her hair out of her eyes for this picture.
Here Sophia stands in front of her flower bed. The seeds she planted are coming up and it won't be long before the plants are ready to blooom. This is one proud little girl!
More flower photos......
Anna and Trey came by on Mother's Day with beautiful flowers for Margaret and myself. Trey did a grand job of picking just the right bouquets for each of us. Anna also made and gave each of us a beautiful home- made card. I also received a beautiful card from Marian. She did an exceptional job on the card's design and it contained a touching , wonderful note inside.
Sophia and Cohen gave me a framed poem about little children growing up fast and stamped above the poem is each of their hand prints; these prints being keep sakes of their childhood. To say the least , I love the picture and am thrilled to have it.

A walk with Cohen reveals great changes in the yard. The peonies are in full bloom, they look grand and smell absolutely wonderful.
This mock orange has the whitest of white blooms. They seem to be glowing with sun light from within rather than reflecting it..These Siberian Iris are in the iris bed at one end of the pool area.
