About a week ago I was on the back porch and checking out my potted plants when I realized a pair of eyes were staring back at me! In the catch tray attached to a hanging pot was a little flog, hanging over the edge checking me out. Since the pot was hanging, we were about eye-to-eye. And yes, I did startle! So, I couldn't figure out how the frog got in there, much less how it was surviving. So I took the pot down and put is on the ground so that the poor thing could hop out if it wanted and go find some food. Which, the frog had disappeared by a couple hours later. So, I hung the pot back up and didn't see the frog anymore- until yesterday. The frog was back in the catch tray AND in the pot hanging next to it, there was another little frog. I thought, how cool, I guess they are happy there, so just let them be. I have one other hanging pot out back, but it doesn't get as much water, so there was none in the catch tray. So, I filled up the watering can and went to fill the catch tray in hopes of attracking another frog there. Well, as I was filling up the tray, yet ANOTHER little frog popped his head up! So, I stopped filling the tray, since it was already occupied! I have no clue how the frogs get in or out of the pots- I'd love to see this in action. I realize they have little suction cup feet, but still- climbing up or down the plastic hangers can't be all that easy. What do you think they eat??

Happy to have some frogs in residence-
