Frog Festival


As it's been raining for days now, French people would refer to these conditions as La Fête de la Grenouille... Weather suitable for making the frogs happy....

There's a French rhyme that goes like this:

Il pleut, il mouille,
C'est la fête de la Grenouille!

(It's raining, it's getting wet, it's the frog festival...)

Now if the frogs are thriving, shouldn't that make the French happy too? Just sayin'.

P.S. Who really likes a photo of rain, but I wanted to share the little poem, so here's "Georges" (named him myself) from the Museum of Natural Sciences in Orléans.
