frog holler~

Our last house had frog hill, fortunately we had moved 2 of the frog benches here before the fire consumed our house last summer, but we were able to salvage the last bench to reunite the gang. I named this section of our garden frog holler because of the bull frogs bellowing in the canal.

This area is still under construction, but frog holler border is thriving these days.
