Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Satisfaction

This photo is from my archives. I saw this wonderful frog statue in our local grocery store, of all places. It was, of course, in the plant section, and it was so cute that I really wanted to take it home. However, I’ve never been one to put statues in the garden And truth to tell, there wasn’t much of a garden at our house. It was a beautiful 100+ year old craftsman, as I’ve mentioned before in posts back a few years. That meant, of course that it had trees that were 80-100 years old growing in the yard. Which also meant there were¬†very deep roots, and it was impossible to plant anything but grass. And right under the trees there was just dirt, as sun hadn’t shone solidly through in a good many decades. Because of the huge, needed-to-be-kept-expensively-trimmed, but-nonetheless-wonderfully-shady trees, we couldn’t keep a proper garden. So there was really no point at all in purchasing this beguiling frog statue. But it looked as though she would be so satisfied¬†to be sitting cheerily in someone’s garden.
