A Rose is a Tree Frog?

Shakespeare wrote, "What's in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet." Romeo may have been romancing Juliette; or, perhaps Shakespeare joked about a rival theater, The Rose, which had substandard plumbing (The Phrase Finder). Gertrude Stein wrote, "A rose is a rose is a rose;" Stein may have meant that roses exist independent of language. In this blog post, a rose is a Gray Tree Frog!
Gray Tree Frogs show a great deal of variablity in color. The photo below is of a gray Gray Tree Frog taken in Erika's garden last spring. I previously posted on this critter.
