No No No!

Remember this guy?  My Friend in the Fountain?

Saturday night on the deck - just after the sun went down and my peep couldn't see real well...

I brought MY friend to her in my mouth!  "Ewwwwwwwwwwwww!"  She said.

I let him go.  He was fine.  He hopped away and I was quite upset when all the peeps on the deck kept saying NO NO NO!

He LET me catch him.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Sweet Flutter Byes

The World is more beautiful because of Butterflies.

It's true.  Can you imagine a world without such an amazing creature?

They fly fast and free.

A group of these creatures is called a Flutter.

That's why I call them Sweet Flutter Byes.
 I  never seem to be able to catch one no matter how hard I try.

They just sweetly flutter bye!

They taste food with their feet!

Flutter Byes weigh less than two rose pedals

and are lighter than a piece of paper

Energy comes from the nectar.

Transformed from a caterpillar in a cocoon for seven whole days,

it magically and mysteriously flutters out after drying off its' new wings, and flies.

Fast and free, dancing in the wind and fluttering bye.

There's no catching these.  That's the Scrappy truth

and it's not for lack of trying.

A Friend in the Fountain

This is why I  love Montana ~ you never know what you will find outside!

Yesterday, I found a new friend hanging out in the fountain on the deck.

Barking for some attention, I yapped at my Peep..."you gotta see this!"

 C'mon!  Look at what I found in here!

Seriously, you will never believe it!

Come and See!

There's a stranger in the fountain!

I saw him again!  There he is!  Look!  He is down there!

Look closer and see my Friend in the Fountain!

He's liking our fountain!  Lots of bugs to eat..

Do they eat bugs?

Wonder if he is this kind of frog ~ it says they can be Olive Green...hmmm

Can I  chase him?


Can I  eat him?


My Peep says "No, Scrappy...your friend in the fountain is too cute for that!"
