First clump of frog spawn in the pond and the water is heaving with frogs.  There is a lot of loud singing at night and goodness knows what come daylight  :ohmy:

As you go past to let the chickens out, the revellers all dive to the bottom  :lol:

I would have to move, absolutely paranoid about them.   Have had treatment for it.   But really no.  If I did by chance ever see one in the garden, I lock my self into the house, and got OH to drive it 5 miles away to a pond we know.    :ohmy:  Mrs Bouquet

Some splashing in my pond yesterday - probably not my goldfish because there's only one left.  :(

Seems like the frogs think it's spring anyway.  :)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

My first butterfly of the year turned up today, a small tortoiseshell. Then a second about an hour later! The earliest in the year I've seen them here by about a month.

We often get whitetail deer jumping the fence into the back garden, but now we seem to have a doe that has taken up residence in the back garden. She is there multiple times a day, hops the fence if she sees us.

This type of behavior often means she has a speckled fawn that she is raising somewhere in the brush in the back garden.  We have not seen the fawn yet, but this has happened many times this year with various other neighbors.

Please stay safe!  Wear a mask, and observe social distancing!

A couple of whitetail deer crossing the road in our neighborhood.  Several does crossed the road ahead of these two bucks.

Why are they called whitetail? When they run, the tail is up, and the underside of the tail is all white. It's probably an adaptation so they can see others in the herd when they run through the woods.
