Prunella Pepperpot, Honorary Princess of Frogs...






Prunella Pepperpot has a passion for frogs and they too for her.
Prunella must have such a strong magnetic aura that frogs find her simply irresistibly attractive and seek her out wherever she may be.

Let us start at the beginning.
For many years now Prunella has shared her garden with a small army of Frogs led by their chief, Colonel Mustard...




He is a large, very wise old frog that enjoys the shade of Prunella's flower border.
Even the snails have great respect for him. 
They know if they are in any way a nuisance he will gobble them up instantly. He will stand for no nonsense especially if they start to devour Prunella's precious blooms... 


As the day nears an end, Prunella loves tending to her fragrant rose collection on her side patio...


Rosa Gentle Hermione...
 


 Rosa Harlow Carr...


Rosa Lady Emma Hamilton...
 


Rosa Boscobel...
 

Rosa Grace...
 

  
an unknown red, grown by Prunella from a cutting, perhaps Deep Secret...


Rosa Strawberry Hill...
 

 Rosa Roald Dahl...


Colonel Mustard's ground patrol pop out from their hidey-holes at this time of the evening.
 They listen to Prunella's chattering about her daily adventures, at the same time keeping cool in the water draining from beneath the flower pots...













Prunella sleeps soundly knowing her patch is being patrolled around the clock by her personal army of faithful frogs.
She was comforted by the knowledge that they would keep a careful eye out for slimy slugs and snails whilst she was away in Wales for the weekend.
They had asked her kindly to say hello to their froglet Welsh cousins.

So it was that Prunella was out walking around the small Welsh lake saying hi to the grazing sheep and enjoying the wild flowers...











...but no froglets in sight...



 Ooh, what can I spy on Prunella's back. 
 Froglet Fred wondered what Prunella was gazing at. 
Perhaps if he climbed higher, he too would be able to enjoy the view...



Prunella fell down laughing from all of his tickling and it wasn't long before she was joined by all of his froglet brothers and sisters...





It was decided unanimously that Prunella Pepperpot should be crowned their Princess of Frogs...

Until the next time, keep smiling,
 stay safe, happy and healthy.
Hugs to all.
