Garden buddies

Well, as of tonight, we have several little tree frogs in our front porch planters and on the front wall of our house. They're cute little things that are on the prowl for all sorts of insects so I'm happy to welcome them once again.

I've also noticed we have some June beetles on the front porch. They don't seem to do very much damage so I just leave them be. Some mornings, when I walk out to get the newspaper, I'll find the leftovers from "beetle carnage" that has occurred when birds have also discovered the beetles. A wing here, a leg there... it's not pretty but it's all part of life in and around the garden.
