I'm going to be a granny!

Bet that got my kids' attention!

When I looked out of the window this morning I had to rush straight out to the pond...



Our first frog spawn of the season!

Last year was our first spring as "pond owners" and I was worried that the frogs wouldn't find us. They did, of course. Must have been the signs I put up eveywhere...



Some of last year's tadpoles "forgot" to change into frogs, and were still swimig around, legless, in November. No sign of them now, however.

Can't wait for my new babies to arrive!

OH my goodness that cracked me up. We have a lot of frog around here in the fall...but they are desert frogs.

Lucky you! we have frogs in our pond but no babies yet. Will you be knitting them bootees?

Such a cute blog - I might even get to like tapioca pudding, now! (Or maybe not).
