I L<3VE Peepers!
Nothing says brighter days are ahead more than peepers.
Goodbye long, hard winter (a fav Little House book tho)
As I wrapped up chores last night I could hear their beautiful music.
The Farmer stepped out onto the porch to enjoy it with me.
Indeed, it brings such happy feelings that I once named a newborn foal "Peepers" after nights sleeping in the barn, serenaded by their sound, as I waited for her arrival.
Picture and text are from here where you
can learn much more.
|Spring Peepers are small frogs that grow less than an inch and a half long. They can be tan or gray or dark brown, but they all have a dark "X" on their backs. Spring Peepers also have large toe pads for gripping plants when they climb.|
Spring Peepers are rarely seen, but are often heard in early Spring. They breedfrom March to June, and in early March you can hear male Spring Peepers calling for mates. Many people think they are crickets, but you only hear crickets in late Summer and early Fall.
Wishing you all sunshine and beautiful music today!
Spring's a comin'!
