Hooray For Frogs in the Pond!

There doesn't seem to be any fish in my pond this year but there are lots of frogs. When my daughter Sarah and her partner Steve visited me last weekend, Steve took a ton of pictures of the frogs. One could play "spot the frog" with this photo. I think there are 6 of them!

I am happy to report that the water lilies have recuperated after being nearly all eaten by the muskrats that invaded my pond a couple of years ago. Even one of the pink water lilies has made a comeback. We saw a single pink flower this past weekend - very beautiful. Then, lo and behold, a frog decided to sit on the flower. The guy's got taste. 

This is one of my favourite photos. Peek-a-boo! Aren't frogs great?

Always loved Frogs & toads and other fun pond critters, like turtles. Lovely pond. Great shots.

Great shots of the little critters. I esp. love the one sitting on the pink water lily!

Good that you got your pond's looking very respectable and froggy. Now that we've had some serious rain at last it will continue to flourish.
