Snohomish, Washington residents can say it’s spring once the snow left over from winter melts and the blooms begin again. But for Allison Lamb, a rowdy but attractive set of neighbors is always the first indication.
Lamb claims that the frogs that frequent her place of business and property, Snohomish Lavender Farm, are extraordinarily active.
Lamb says, “I have some flowers along my house, and they will climb up the walls, and they get up in my hanging flower baskets.” The lamb saw frogs jumping around his house. Suddenly, he was surprised to see a frog doing something he had never seen before. One day when she went to check her flower garden: he was taking a very-needed nap in one of her dahlias.
Lamb said that she was surprised to see a frog napping in one of her dahlias. She grows about 200 dahlias on her property and was delighted to find them blooming as a service, a pollen source for bees, and a perfectly sized hotel for frogs. As the summer wore on, “I started seeing more and more,” Lamb remarked. Some days she could see more than 10 different frogs in hiding in her flowers.
In the spring and summer, the lamb and her cubs spend their mornings looking for Pacific tree frogs in their flower garden. The frogs’ visit provides them with excitement and fun. However, it’s not just fun for these Pacific frogs to crawl into these flower petal pockets. They are essential to maintaining the health and vitality of the flower garden. Lamb said, “The frogs eat the bad bugs for me.“
Indeed, frogs are not the only creatures living in this flower garden. As the lamb says, the bees also spend the night in her flower garden, she also discovers small spiders finding refuge, and last year she found little gardener snakes up in her blooms. “I also have a praying mantis, many salamanders, and a lot of caterpillars in the late summer.”
But according to Lamb, nothing compares to the frogs huddling inside his flowers. Also, she always laments their departure at the end of summer.
Until the first frost, according to Lamb, when the blooms die, they remain in the blossoms the entire season. Lamb is confident that the frogs will migrate when it’s too cold but will return in the spring.
