Scene and Story from March 2017

Frog Yard Art

A few weeks ago, Hubby and I were camping in the gold rush country. We took some time to explore the little town of Angels Camp. It was at the Blooms and Things Nursery and Florist that I met this cute little prince charming in disguise (aka the frog). Just can’t be in Mark Twain’s old stomping grounds without bumping into a frog at every turn. I strongly considered bringing him home with us, but instead, I grabbed the hand of the Prince Charming I already have, and we moved on. However, if that little green cutie is still there the next time we visit…

If you’re interested in more of the whimsy at Blooms and Things, you ca read about it on my other blog at TowingFlo.com

  2. Love the whimsy. I am such a traditionalist. I have a faded white picket fence in my corner garden. Bu that is also where our dogs are buried, so making some plans to make it peaceful and beautiful this year.

  3. I remember reading that Mark Twain story in school - The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County. Do they still have the Jumping Frog festival there every year?

    1. Yes Lee, they do hold the frog jumping contest still. It's held in Calaveras, each May. Don't think I'll be attending as I'm not overly fond of frogs that jump and croak.

      Thanks for visiting and thanks for co-hosting the link-up.

  5. I can see the frog by the side of a pond - that would be pretty charming. He makes me smile, he looks so happy and a bit mischievous.

    1. Hi Carola. He made me smile too and he's quiet. Wouldn't keep me up all night croaking. Thanks for visiting.

  6. You must be a very strong person to avoid taking this sculpture home with you! Metal sculptures always get my attention, particularly if old metal is being recycled into something interesting. Good thing your Prince Charming was there to rescue you from temptation.

    1. Hi Jeanne. I've only know about Georgia a short time and it was her art that caused be to read about her - I think it had something to do with a photography class I took, as I'm not a painter. There are only two painters that I know anything about. The other is Thomas Kincade.

      So nice to meet you too. Thanks for visiting.

  10. Those are great colors on the frog and I would absolutely enter any establishment that had something so whimsical at the entrance. Mark Twain statue sitting on the park bench with an open book (from TowingFlo.com) - love it!
