Our pond is under siege by an invasion of frogs.  It’s not unusual to see three or four, but this afternoon we had 11 that I could count and there had to be more hiding in the plants at ponds edge.  That tells me I did something right.

3 of many

Here’s some more.

There are six frogs hiding in the picture above.

The weather has been dry lately with not even a dust settler for this month.  This morning we had a thunderstorm roll through and it didn’t even leave a tenth of an inch.

Our ponds also has drawn deer for a drink.  I’ve not seen them at the pond, but have found them leaving when I step out in the morning.  With the only open water source in some distance we are drawing quite a few birds also.  It sure can make dinner in the screen porch an interesting time.
