look whose back...

It amazes me that over night the pond is full of action.... ripples and ribbets everywhere !

I counted 50 heads this morning, I think there might be more on the way to the party soon... A few years ago there were over 100 in there...

They make a lot of noise calling for their girlies, but they are enjoying themselves. The fish on the other hand are not too impressed !!

(Can you tell I'm knitting things that I cant blog ? )

Hello .... Stumbled Across your blog. I knit also... very badly, but my nephews and niece are becomign strangely attached to my holey scarves and hats!

I'm trying to progress to crochet! So far I've managed 12 loops reducing to 5..... I'm going wrong somewhere but I'll work it out!!

Love your photos! We had ONE frog in the garden last year, but we don't have a pond, it lived under our patio. We called him Drogba!!!

My Dad's pond is like that - full of frisky frogs and frog spawn already. We could almost do Knitters Spring Watch!! Lovely to see signs of Spring isn't it?!

I just stood near our pond for a while, and only counted 16 frogs and three newts. Seems we are somewhat behind you here in the East Midlands!

That picture has made my day. I adore frogs (much to my mother's horror).

I'm a Herefordian now living in Edinburgh and I love to see your Wednesday Wye pictures.... I'm also slightly jealous about your charity shop bargains, Edinburgh prices are obviously a bit higher than Ross-on-Wye! I'll have to check it out when we come down at Easter to visit my folks.

hello there, what a fab frog foto.I dont think the frogs are gathering yet in scotland, maybe a bit chilly for them just yet. when they do start clanning together it can be a bit tricky taking the dog for a walk as she wants to investigate every quivering lump. They're fascinating to watch though.

I was wrong about the frogs in Scotland, I took my pooch for a walk and did manage to see 3 before the daft dog scared then off. No doubt the heron will round by the ponds soon enough to scoff some of the fabby frogs ( sigh)
