Frog Musicians at the Park

As part of our school fieldtrip we went to the Natures Playground at the Assinaboine Park in Winnipeg. This is a wonderful place for children to play, with neat swings, climbing and jumping structures. Needless to say, our students had a blast!
What fascinated me the most was this unique display of frog musicians. I chuckled as I walked among them - frogs don't have much of a voice for singing, but maybe they're more suited for playing musical instruments. It must have taken a tremendous amount of work to create this interesting display. Would love to see them when they're in full bloom.














And then there's this shaggy beast and it too is covered with some kind of plant.


(: Don't think there'll be too much blogging for me next week. I'll be in Sioux Falls, South Dakota attending a Jill Eggleton Summer Institute, but will also have a chance to tour, shop and visit. So, hey, if you know the area, tell me about the main attractions, the best shops, restaurants... I'm really looking forward to this! :)
