Dancing with Frogs – Pondering Life in General

As we sat by the pond this morning marveling about how much water the pond is finally holding, I hopped inside to grab the camera.

Surprisingly enough, the frog stood still just long enough to let me get 6 great shots of him!  I think this one just may be one of my masterpieces!  Every time that you walk up to the pond, they all jump in!  They are amazingly camouflaged with their heads green and the back part brown so that they appear to be leaves floating in the water.  This is because if they don’t, the hawks will swoop down and snatch them from the “drink”!!  They all sing at night.  It is truly magnificent.

Pond dynamics are wonderful!  For 2 years we have been trying to keep water in the pond…you will remember The Pond Saga and associated video where our 6 year old grandson’s pond actually held water…how humiliating!

This month we are trying again to get the pond to hold water.  We added several bags of clay and for the “piece-de-resistance” added 3 bags of concrete mix.  Seems to have worked…for now.  They say we need to add bentonite and that will be the next step.

We are eternal optomists!
