Garden rescue and native orchid

A couple of days ago David rescued this little critter from our swimming pool. After consulting the Museum of Victoria app, it appears to be Haskells frog, by the line down its back and the black eye line.

It sat on the front porch for a bit before disappearing into the greenery. We are pleased that frogs are still in this area, as it is the first we have seen here.

In the nearby bushland, I found this beautiful specimen of a hyacinth orchid, which is indigenous to the Mornington Peninsula.

Finally, a photo of our garden in the early morning. I liked the way the soft sunlight picked out the geometric shapes of hedge and umbrella and the symmetry of the reflections.
