Frogs in the Pond

1 Comment

Had an interesting summer of garden creatures this year. The same toad that lived in a pot on the deck last year (see June 2012) came back. He picked a different pot, but it was the same chubby guy, climbing the deck stairs to get to where he wanted to be. 

We also had a family of 5 frogs move into the pond. We’ve had the odd summer where we see one or two, but this was the first time we’ve seen 5 at once. At first they looked like they might have the markings of the Northern Leopard Frog, but I believe they are your basic Green Frog. Hope they return next year….and I hope our very spoiled pet toad does as well!

Yes, there's the odd failure, but there's nothing quite as satisfying as walking through the veggie patch collecting dinner.
