One of our favourite things about Spring is the annual concert of the spring peepers.
What is a spring peeper you might be wondering? Don’t worry, it’s not the neighbours looking through the pottery studio window when I am changing into my studio swag!
Peepers are small frogs that chirp in a chorus, announcing the arrival of Spring!
In our area they put on quite the concert
And are often a highlight of the spring season. Each spring peeper will lay up to 1,000 eggs and so we often see many of these frogs around our house and seeking out shade in the summer.
We want to share a small part of the peep show with you as part of our ‘Great Pottery Giveaway‘! Once we get 30 new subscribers, we will be adding this adorable little ceramic frog to our prize pack.

OMG I had no idea about Peepers. Really cool. Thanks for the post.
no problem! they are such a lovely welcome to spring, we just had to share!
I miss that sound, they don’t peep down here in the desert as far as I know.
It looks like there are two types
– The northern, P. c. crucifer, found all over the eastern United States and eastern Canada.
– The southern, P. c. bartramiana. The southern is distinguished by a strong dark marking on its belly. P. c. bartramiana is found along the southern Gulf Coast from southeastern Texas to northern Florida and southern Georgia.
So yes that far south but not that far west. 🙂
Thank you. I wasn’t positive it was frogs I was hearing. Now I know what to call the cuties.
Wonderful! Glad that you can hear them where you are too and happy to help! 🙂
That ceramic frog is adorable.
thanks! And now the turtle has a friend 🙂
I love your ceramic frog!
thank you Eugenia! I hope you are keeping well!
You’re welcome! All is well and I hope your days are bright, as well.
