Frogs and Spawn

It was a beautiful sunny day today, perfect for sitting in Crafty Green Boyfriend's mother's garden and watching the frogs. There's plenty of frogspawn in the pond and a fair number of tadpoles too. Some of the spawn are very fresh and some of them are already starting to wriggle around.

and every once in a while a frog poked its head out of the water to say hello

We think this frog is probably four years old, so another year before it's fully mature and ready to start mating and laying its own spawn.

Love the photo of the frog. I didn't realize that are that old before they're reproducing.
