Busy Frogs

Wednesday was a lovely sunny day with lots of sunshine but the temperature still didn't quite manage to make it into double figures with a high of 9.1°C.

A couple of days ago I posted a picture of the frogspawn in our pond. I’m certain now that our frogs are a little late this year as over the last couple of days lots more frogspawn has appeared. It’s a little difficult to know which clump I noticed first now but here’s my latest picture.

One of the few benefits of the cold start to spring is that our Hellebores seem to have been flowering for ages. These on our back border are now starting to look a little past their best but have put on an excellent display despite all the frost and snow.

  1. I just posted about the lack of frogspawn in my ponds. Just one clump so far. There are still plenty of breeding frogs around though, so I'm hopefully more will appear as the weather improves.

  2. That seems like quite a substantial amount of frog spawn. I loved playing in ponds growing up and I remember loads of frog spawn and it feeling like jelly. Of course I was always afraid of getting warts from handling frogs.

  3. They're still "busy" producing More!
