Ten feet high in the crook of a tree, on a hilltop, a gooseberry bush thrives at about 1800 feet elevation, zone 5 northeastern Pennsylvania, summer 2020.
About 30 years ago I began climbing that tree to that crook, and there was no gooseberry bush, but I came face to face with a tree frog, staring directly at me.
We stared at each other. I stopped the climb and let the frog have its tree. Makes me wonder today what’s in that gooseberry bush in the tree.
