    That is a handsome frog! You may want to find a maiden and have her kiss him--he could be Prince Froggy.

    He is cute, you should see our pond in the spring, there are hundreds of peepers singing. It's quite an uproar. I usually also find a fat bullfrog or two when I'm cleaning out the pond in the Spring.

    I had a similar experience opening our ponds this year. As often as I see them (they blend in so well), when I don't and they jump....so do I!...BUT
    this year, we got an unexpected present.....our frogs became parents 20140918_192130_resized.jpg and I didn't even know it!...we have about 30 bullfrog tadpoles between the two level ponds.
    I love those guys even if they DO make me jump!

    We have lots of frogs and newts in our pond. I'm just hoping the newts don't dine on all the tadpoles but leave enough to breed in future years.

    Hi. I am another great Frog, Toad, Newt etc fan and in spite of the dryness here we do get them, more so since I made the little pond which they can get in or out of comfortably, even Grass Snakes welcome but rarely seen. We are all I guess UK or U.S. familiar with the "Wind In The Willows" writings and the creatures featured in them - I refer to Mr Toad who lived in"Toad Hall". Next the path past the pond here was a very unsightly metal manhole cover - not the sort of thing you would want to see in the middle of the garden. It has of course to remain easily accessible so I put a course of bricks all round it and left one out here and there for entry and exit - covered these with paving slabs so as to leave a nice cool space under them on the cover . I call that "Toad Hall" and it is used, see them coming and going n0w and then, there may even be a young Grass Snake under there also as there once was. All are welcome. Syd.
