The thought had crossed my mind. To assume authority and arrange the tenants of the garden to suit my designs – we’re all tenants here after all. But I really don’t like to interfere, so much.
With the frogs scattering throughout the (admittedly) small but wildly welcoming garden, and the amaryllis such a short flowering plant or bulb, why not catch a frog and pose it on a big red flower before they’re (both) gone?
Why not? Well, it begs the question, where does that kind of interference stop. I don’t mind moving some back or foreground element, or even move an entire scene if possible, if it’s also possible to return it to original position.
But hunting down a frog to manhandle it into a place and position it probably wouldn’t settle in and would probably require repeated resettling, in a tight small garden it’s hard to navigate without breaking things. Too much ado all round for my liking.
Then early last night I popped out to have a look, as I often do, and there she (or he) was, a lovely green tree frog sitting on the big dark red amaryllis.
