these garden visitors back in February. I was surprised to hear one calling again recently, it seemed much too cold for the frogs to be active again, but there they were bopping away.
Now I know why, we discovered these sparkling jewels of frog spawn in the pond on the weekend. Unremarkable to most I'm sure but of great excitement round here. Fingers crossed they'll grow to become tadpoles, it certainly is feeling more like spring round here. On a friend's advice we've moved the eggs from the pond to a bucket to keep them safe from the goldfish, at least until they're a bit larger and able to fend for themselves.
I hope you have a lovely weekend planned friends and beautiful weather like we have here :-) Thank you so much for all the visits and comments this week, for all your sweet words about Christina's Show & Tell and for our softies and cranes.
I'm away next week, going north to help my Mum move into her new house and I probably won't get a chance to blog till I'm back. I'll be blog reading though, just as soon as I can get her internet working!
