I was walking around the garden trying to remember where i put the aqualegia seeds.I suddenly noticed something small and green jumping.I dont know who was more suprised me or the frog!
There is no pond in our garden or even next doors.Where did you come from froggy?Did it rain frogs??
Maybe he wanted a snack of some delicious snails or slugs.He hid between the log post and grass watching me.His little heart was beating fast (as was mine).
We sat eye to eye, me with the camera.I took photo's on my good camera.I thought there must be a way to send them online from a mobile.I can do it but not as good as just uploading to the laptop.
If I have some special pics I can now get it onto my gardens blog. Just untill I get a new laptop when i get paid..
I left him a washing up bowl with some water in it. I think he was parched, and looking for some water.
Do frogs migrate from water to water? Was my garden frog a traveller migrating to ponds new?
I have solar light frogs, ceramic ones, but never expected to find one hopping in my grass.
I guess people who have ponds with resident frogs (like Dalty, he is cool) get used to them.I think they are magic, spirits of the garden. Devourer of slugs and snails...
I am still happy i found him (or he found me), now i want a small pond in the garden, for my froggy and all his brethren.
