Flower Frog


I ♥ tulips.

But they have flimsy stems and they need a little help so I created a natural looking frog.

I used my 40% off coupon at HL and bought a large plastic branch.

Yes, I could use one from the yard…

but I thought water and the branch may get a little yucky.

I grabbed an old fish bowl from the attic.

Did a little tree surgery ;), rolled the limbs into a ball and filled up the fish bowl.

Added water and trimmed the tulips.

They are standing tall with their heads held high.

They are happy and so am I!

    What a great solution. You’re right, a lot better than a stick from the outdoors.

    I can’t resist anything that reads, “Flower Frog,” as I collect the vintage kind. Your natural frog is very clever and looks wonderful. Nice work.
