Frog: Any of numerous tailless, aquatic, semiaquatic, or terrestrial amphibians of the order Anura and especially of the family Ranidae, characteristically having a smooth moist skin, webbed feet, and long hind legs adapted for leaping.

“Where there are no swamps there are no frogs” German Proverb

“If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.” Mark Twain

“Never try to catch two frogs with one hand.” Chinese Proverb

It’s frog season in Florida.  The breeding season lasts from May to October.  Every evening or after a rain if you’re still you will hear their song outside.

Growing up surrounded by water I am used to them. In Puerto Rico it was the Coqui and his sweet nighttime lullaby.  The ones in Florida are not as cute.  Not as fond of them as some peeps I know but they don’t disgust me as long as they keep off me. lol

I thought these pics would bring a smile to the frog lovers.  Especially this guy on the laptop. lol

Strange but true facts about Frog Symbolism

In China the Frog is an emblem of Yin energy and thought of as good luck. Feng Shui practices recommend putting an image of a Frog in the east window of your home to encourage child birth and/or happy family life.

Frogs are also good luck symbols in Japan. When traveling they wear charms to assure safety especially when traveling across water.

For Celtic culture the Frog was deemed lord over all the earth. They believed frogs represented curative or healing powers because of its connection to water and cleansing rains.

Western and European cultures focus on the Frog’s three stages of development (egg, tadpole, fully formed amphibian) to symbolize resurrection and spiritual evolution.
