Frogs and Pixies

For the past week, this fellow has stopped by for a visit every evening. He hops onto the living room window and stays for a few hours. I'm not sure if he's a frog prince waiting for a kiss or a maybe a moocher looking to borrow $5. Check out that sexy yellow leopard colouring on those legs!

This morning I ventured outside (a dangerous feat, the mosquitoes were on full alert) and very nearly stepped on this little hopper.

I cursed and grumbled and this wee pixie came along to see what the fuss was about. She double checked on the little guy and gave a nod of approval before fluttering off.

She's been hanging out in my studio since Christmas, just lazing around, stealing my scissors and buttons. I guess she got fed up of being on my 'to-do list' and made herself some raggedy clothes.

Last I looked she was sitting in the black locust tree, taking in the morning sun.

I think this one will be a handful ;)
