Check out this little guy! Nature’s miracle in a Spring Peeper

Leave it to my son to find this tiny Spring Peeper. Nothing escapes this guy:

spring peeper1spring peeper too

We used to love hearing them in the early spring, peeping in the local swamp. One year we had a lone peeper in the tarp of our swimming pool! I felt bad he never found his mate. We were treated to a couple of lusty tree frogs that year too. 🙂

Have you ever caught a Spring Peeper?

A Radical Scheme – guest post by Lori Erickson of Spiritual Travels

Extravagance in my neighbor’s yard (Lori Erickson photo)

“Nature is, above all, profligate. Don’t believe them when they tell you how economical and thrifty nature is, whose leaves return to the soil. Wouldn’t it be cheaper to leave them on the tree in the first place? This deciduous business alone is a radical scheme, the brainchild of a deranged manic-depressive with limitless capital. Extravagance! …”

So writes Annie Dillard in Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. I love that line about this deciduous business being a radical scheme, the brainchild of a manic-depressive with limitless capital. When I took a walk this morning, I stood beneath a neighbor’s maple in a shower of shimmering leaves, each one the product of a hundred sunny days, watching as they twirled and tumbled about me, drawn toward earth in a dance they will take just once. Extravagance indeed.
