Ever been to the Frog Wall of Santa Barbara, California?
Neither had we until our hiking/pickleball friends, Claudia and Bill, took us there this past winter. Over the last few years, frogs have organically began appearing on Paterna Road on the hillside in Santa Barbara.
Immediately taken with the idea of a Frog Wall, Hannah made it her mission to create a Frog Wall in front of our house in York, Maine.
Ergo, we cleared the forest floor behind the frog wall, collected rocks for the wall’s construction, and began to spread the word that frogs are welcome to Maine.
Thanks to our local friends Karen and Mandy, our sister-in-law Stacy and niece Liesje, our pickleball buddy Norm, and pickleball friends Genny and Alan (their granddaughter Caitlin painted a frog on stones), frogs are beginning to populate our Frog Wall.
Though the stone wall for your frogs won’t be completed until 2021 due to Hannah’s fractured left elbow and second bunion surgery this Wednesday with its 6 to 8 week rehab, we invite you to bring a frog for the Frog Wall of York, Maine and watch those frogs multiply.
If you are from Away, please consider sending us a frog that will make you a proud member of Frog Nation, and come visit the FW the next time you are in town.
As you no doubt know, a frog is a short bodied, tailless amphibian.
What’s the difference between a frog and a toad, Dan? Well, most frogs have long legs and smooth skin while toads generally have shorter legs and rougher, thicker skins.
