It is not uncommon to look out the window from our kitchen and see one of these in the garden...
But then she got up on her hind legs and started to eat the leaves from the weeping pussy willow.
The old saying 'build it and they will come' is so true with a backyard pond. We started out with a couple of frogs and now have over a dozen living happily here.
Sometimes they sit on the big blue lily pad with the ceramic frog.
This one (I've named Stumpy) is missing part of its back right leg but it doesn't stop him from getting out of the water to bask on the rocks.
This is the third year Stumpy has been in the pond and I've found him all over the yard in search of food.
