The Frog Bridge

IMG_2402

A few weeks ago I mentioned finding two frogs in the mini pond, who were struggling to get out. I helped them with the use of the fishnet thingy I have and thought they learned a good lesson and would never return.

But their little brains didn’t learn and they showed up again and again.

A reader suggested I build a bridge so they could climb out easily.

OK here it is, a concrete block with flat rocks sitting on it and reaching out to the edge. I set it up and then went back to work in the garden. An hour or so later I saw a frog basking in the sun on that bridge. Dee-lightful!

He immediately jumped off and hid under the bridge and although I waited a long time in hopes he would come out of hiding, it was for naught. Here is his foot, the only part visible to me.

While I waited, two lovely fishes swam into focus, and that satisfied me.

Our rhododendrons are in full bloom, which is way early this year. Such a display! I feel like a queen when I see them.

  3. Wow! Those are rhododendrons fit for a queen! Beautiful!

    Wonder why your peonies aren't open? Only two and a half of mine are open. The other two bushes are not.. must be the specific type.
