Don’t ask me where I came up with the names for these frogs, but she does look like a Petunia, right?  😀

    Well…taking a second look after reading your words I think maybe it does look like a petunia. I grow them every year, and it that color too.
    Very adorable frog, just like the others.

      Thanks, Debbie. I don’t think I’ve ever known anyone named Petunia. It seems there is a skunk or a pig in a cartoon, maybe? 😀

        Now that this post is exposed on the internet, you give it some time and before you know it these new moms will be naming there baby girls “Petunia”. You may have started something new here. lol
        Cartoon character named “Petunia” I don’t know, but you just might be guessing right.

    This looks like a Petunia to me! What’s a Jersey Shore Snooky frog look like?

      ha ha ha I haven’t ever seen a Jersey Shore Snooky person, so I have no idea. I’ve heard of those women, but have never seen them. Careful…. I might just have to try it. 😀

    I love this

    “Live this day as if it will be your last. Remember that you will only find ”tomorrow” on the calendars of fools. Forget yesterday’s defeats and ignore the problems of tomorrow. This is it. Doomsday. All you have. Make it the best day of your year. The saddest words you can ever utter are, ”If I had my life to live over again. ”Take the baton, now. Run with it! This is your day! Beginning today, treat everyone you meet, friend or foe, loved one or stranger, as if they were going to be dead at midnight. Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.” Og Mandino
