Rusty Frog



"A huge frog and I,
Staring at each other,
Neither of us moves."

~Kobayashi Issa~


Whenever I visit my favorite walkabout place, I invariably find myself in the children's garden.  You might remember him from other posts. There he sits, high up on a wooden frame, making sure all children are safe under his watchful gaze.
