As I have cabin fever from caring for all our poorly cherubs (now nearly all better, phew) I have been so grateful to a few lovely Spring days. The sun has shone, the washing has blown and the garden is waking up.
After many trips to the recycle bins I stumbled across our pond. It is a bit of a sorrow sight this time of year and I am relishing the Spring tidy up to find all the new growth. We seem to have three surviving fish which is a bonus for this house as the heron ate the last lot for breakfast.
Amongst the end of the fallen leaves on the pond is a haven for all the frogs speed dating. The frogs are all very busy doing what nature does best yet my concern is a tidy up before the layer of frog spawn arrives. Plip plop as they all jump about.
If all frogs looked like Kermit I would be cool with this but they are just the common garden brown ones!
I like frogs if they are ‘over there’ but not when jumping across my garden Crocs… ewww
