Do you remember me telling you about the frogspawn we found in a watering can? We moved it in to our teeny tiny pond and hoped we'd get some tadpoles this year.
The day after we moved the frogspawn, we noticed that fresh clumps had been laid too. We've had our little pond for seven years and though we get plenty of frogs in there, this is the first time we've had frogspawn.
Unfortunately, it wasn't to be. The frogspawn has just disappeared over time without hatching out. I think the pond may be too small, it measures just 84cm x 64cm.
As I said, we do get plenty of frogs in there though. They also use the little frog house I have at the side of the pond which is camouflaged by the plants. Here's a froggy sunning himself on the side of the pond.
Preparing to jump.
You can just see his legs here, he's resting underneath the marsh marigold.
I don't think we're destined to ever have tadpoles but I'm just glad that the frogs are happy to visit.
