Tree frogs.
I sat and listened to the tree frogs for a while before I went to bed last night.
For me, it's the birds early in the a.m. I take the dog outside and my hot cup of coffee and sit on the porch and listen. I remember when I first came - not a lot of music. But, from one small weathered redwood bird feeder, I have evolved a symphony of early morning music. There is even a Latin American parrot (somebody's escaped pet) that comes every year from wherever it goes in the winter, and we have heard it every year for eight years now. I have seen it at a distance (yellow) but never up close and personal. Same with the pileated woodpecker.

The toads in the yard are your first signs of a healthy environment. If they're fat and healthy, your environment is good.

I just looked it up and some parrots can live to be 80 to 100 years old in the wild.

One day two zucchinis, who were best friends, were walking together down the street. They stepped off the curb and a speeding car came around the corner and ran one of them over. The uninjured zucchini called 911 and helped his injured friend as best he was able. The injured zucchini was taken to emergency at the hospital and rushed into surgery. After a long and agonizing wait, the doctor finally appeared. He told the uninjured zucchini, "I have good news, and I have bad news. The good news is that your friend is going to pull through." "The bad news is that he's going to be a vegetable for the rest of his life".

The zucchini in my regular zucchini bed died off a few weeks ago. I was weeding a neglected spot in my garden and discovered some sweet banana peppers that I planted there this spring then forgot. It was a nice surprise. Then I noticed four huge zucchinis that came from a volunteer that must have come up when the Black Eye Susan's and Salvia were thick in that spot. I didn't know it was there but I'm glad it was. This zucchini bread is really good.
Now that's the beauty of having a home garden. Those little surprise gifts it gives us.

Last fall my sister and her family were over for a visit.
My nephew came to the house dragging a big pumpkin and asked if he could have it.
I told him he could have it and asked where he found it since I had already harvested my pumpkins.
He said it was down in the weeds at the end of the patch and asked me if he found anymore could he have them too.
I said sure and he was off.
They left with two dozen pumpkins of various sizes that I had no idea were even there.
LMAO, I think next time you harvest you need to hire him to help.

You're going to think I'm making this up, but after I posted that I was out in the yard pulling some weeds. When I stood up there was a tree frog clinging to my arm.
I was going to take it off and put it on a tree trunk so it wouldn't get hurt, but it tinkled on my arm and hopped away under its own power.
It was one of the grey ones. Most of the ones I've seen have been green.

LOL I really don't dislike frogs. I love all of natures creatures with a few exceptions. But they sure are annoying at certain times during the year.

Hello sweet lady. I can never make enough of the bread. I've never seen so much go so fast. I'd like to have some left to freeze but the family keeps wanting more.

It comes from a story called, "The Three Princes of Serendip"

"In ancient times there existed in the country of Serendippo, in the Far East, a great and powerful king by the name of Giaffer. He had three sons who were very dear to him. And being a good father and very concerned about their education, he decided that he had to leave them endowed not only with great power, but also with all kinds of virtues of which princes are particularly in need."

So begins the fascinating story of The Three Princes of Serendip. In order to provide the best tutors for his sons, the king travels throughout the island until he finds a number of scholars, each specialized in a different field, "And to them he entrusted the training of his sons, with the understanding that the best they could do for him was to teach them in such a way that they could be immediately recognized as his very own."

As the three princes are endowed with great intelligence, they soon become highly trained in the arts and sciences. However, when the tutors inform the king of his sons' achievements, he is sceptical. So he summons his eldest son and announces that he wishes to retire to a monastery and that his son should succeed him as ruler. The eldest son politely refuses, insisting that his father is wiser and should reign until his death. The two younger sons also refuse when commanded in a similar manner.

Although the king is astonished by the wisdom displayed by his sons, he decides to send them on a prolonged journey so that they can acquire empirical experience. He summons his sons and, giving the impression of being angry and disappointed because they have all disobeyed him, banishes them from Serendip. "Thus they started their peregrination and moved out of his kingdom until they reached the kingdom of a great and powerful emperor, whose name was Beramo."

Misfortune befalls the princes when a camel driver stops them on the road and asks them if they have seen one of his camels. Although they have not, they have noticed signs that suggest a camel has passed along the road. Ever ready to dazzle with their wit and sagacity, the princes mystify the camel driver by asking him if the lost camel is blind in one eye, missing a tooth and lame. The camel driver, impressed by the accuracy of the description, immediately hurries off in pursuit of the animal.

After a fruitless search, and feeling deceived, he returns to the princes, who reassure him by supplying further information. The camel, they say, carried a load of butter on one side and honey on the other, and was ridden by a pregnant woman. Concluding that the princes have stolen the camel, the driver has them imprisoned. It is only after the driver's neighbour finds the camel that they are released.

The princes are brought before Emperor Beramo, who asks them how they could give such an accurate description of a camel they had never seen. It is clear from the princes' reply that they had brilliantly interpreted the scant evidence observed along the road.
