It has become one of my favorite parts of my morning ritual. Sitting on the stoop feeding the fish. I am now so trusted by my run of Koi that they nibble occasionally on my finger as they eat their breakfast. Imagine my supreme surprise when I noticed a robust frog just beneath the lily pad.
Imagine my greater surprise when I realized there were two.
It tickled me and made me consider the morning. I too am a fan of curling up and sleeping with CF – lazy mornings being an indulgence too infrequently enjoyed. They looked so contented resting there – safe and happy. Out of place a bit in a Koi pond, but not dissimilar to how happy and cloistered CF and I are in our home surrounded by as yet unknown neighbors.
And so, I fed my fish, and let sleeping frogs lie – or float.
