2008 really is Â«The Year of the FrogÂ».
The year essentially is a global public awareness campaign aiming to raise awareness and understanding of the amphibian extinction crisis which, according to the organisation Â«Amphibian ArkÂ»,

2008 also is
- the International Year of Planet Earth,
- the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue,
- the International Year of the Potato, and
- the International Year of Sanitation.
But for me, 2008 will always be the year of the frog – not the least because I bought Mr FroschkÃ¶nig, the star of these pictures, from Â«The Crafty HedgehogÂ» over at tragically addictive etsy.
Maybe frogs don’t bring me luck, after all.
a Frog Concert will take place in Padova (Italy) on 22 June 2008, involving the frogs in the stream that runs behind the ex-Macello
yes, they better dress up as they will me meeting (among others) the 15 members of the Cambridge University Ceilidh Band
