Frog Adventures












eye to eye
with the stone Buddha -
the small green frog










Auge in Auge
mit dem Stein-Buddha -
der kleine Frosch







This time Karl, our tiny Frog Friend, had really out-done himself
in finding a place for his daily nap.

Oh Gabi,
this is another wonderful glimpse of Karl...
