Orgy in a pond!

February 26th 2010, frog day in my garden. Twelve days later than last year, no doubt because we have had a colder winter. At least 20 frogs were counted there today. Difficult to be exact as they dive when they see any movement so I had to stay very still.

My pond desperately needs a new liner which keeps being put off because of the frogs. It will have to wait another year as the cold wet and freezing conditions have made the task impossible this winter. Maybe it will have to be done late summer when the tadpoles have grown and left.

So many ponds have disappeared from the countryside Jennifer that frogs are finding it hard to find places to spawn. I am so lucky that they like my pond and would urge anybody who can to make a pond in their garden to help our diminishing wildlife.

Completely obscene lol

But I am very envious of all your wildlife.
