Hall of Fav(e)s is where I gush about all of my favorite things in any category. Here’s part of the 2020 class:

I LOVE FROGS. And Turtles.


I think they’re so marvelously cute and diverse and elusive. They come in all different colors and shapes. I’m sure many think I’m crazy, but aside from humans, I think frogs show off the creativeness of God more than any other creature does.

I adore them all, but here are some of my favorites:

Glass Frog

Black Rain Frog

Red-Eyed Tree Frog

Teal and Black Poison Dart Frog

Mossy Frog



I’ve also loved turtles for as long as I can remember. I’ve has turtles that live mostly in water, tortoises that mostly stay on land. I’ve had tiny turtles similar to the one below. I had a red-eared slider for around 15 years before I gave it someone else to take care of. They’re so fun to watch and look at and keep around.
