Frog Palace

First I noticed the pink painted house and could see what seemed to be a stunning purple flowering jacaranda over the fence.


Then I saw the sign.


After a few more footsteps, I heard frogs happily croaking in a tiny stream of water which was heading downhill towards the Derwent.


In the past this property has been subject to flooding from rising river waters. Not much further along the road was a measurement stick showing the different meter levels that the river has been known to rise in extreme circumstances. The vertical white line on the left of the photograph below is the measurement tool – its height (well above my head) indicates the inundation that this area can expect occasionally.
