Weekly Photo Challenge. This Week: Optimistic.

Imagine my surprise as I looked down whilst unpacking the organic vegetables and some of them were looking back up at me!

Well ok not the vegetables themselves but a little celery hitch-hiker.

The Frog and the Celery.

After an initial state of shock I managed to compose to myself and look more closely. Was it dead? Probably. Surely? I wasn’t optimistic.  But then…

Wriggle, wriggle. OK one very alive frog wrapped in cling film. I hopped into action.

There can always be ‘surprises’ when you shop organic

I carefully removed its see-through jailer and wandered outside. After some coaxing Froggy emerged. I thought for a minute what a maelstrom of change this little guy must have been through in recent days.

After a few moments, and in a very unsurprisingly cautious manner, the little critter emerged from its leafy bed.

I stood guard for a few minutes as the tiny creature relearned how to hop. I guess being wrapped up in cling film for a few days would be akin to being 7 foot tall and travelling economy class on a 24 hour flight from Australia to Europe. The limbs would need some re-engagement.

I also made sure that my little buddy didn’t hop road-wards and attempt to replicate that most famous of Eighties arcade games – Frogger. No that wouldn’t end well right now. Nimble isn’t a word I would use to describe the current condition. I nudged him into more friendly and leafy territory.

And then I left him/ or her. It’s over to them now. I’ve done my part. I am quite optimistic however. Seems to be a survivor.

Bon Chance my friend!

Travel is my passion and also my career. I’ve spent my entire working-life in the travel industry with roles as diverse as tour guide, travel agent and marketing manager for some of the worlds largest travel brands. My favourite city in the world to visit is NYC and France is my most beloved country to explore. I travel to learn and observe to understand always with camera in hand.

    1. Haha. Not sure, didn’t say much. Maybe he had a frog-in-his-throat. Actually on thinking about it I was the one that that nearly happened too! Haha. Thanks for your comment. Yeah it was nice to free him 🙂
