My new 'baby'

We've been lucky this year in that some of our frogspawn have reached the froglet stage.  I worry about the poor little things in case they get out of the pond as it's such a big leap for them to get back up there with it being a raised pond.  I keep saying that I'm going to have to put another one in which is ground level and then I can put the spawn in there away from the fish!  We know the fish must have been eating the tadpoles as they've been off their food :(

He's still got a little stump of a tail but it will soon be absorbed back into the body

If you look at a frog from the side you can see that they have beautiful golden eyes.  Unfortunately he moved a fraction before I took the photo

small and perfectly formed

You can see how tiny he is on this photo, less than 1cm long

Sweet William but .......

....... not of the royal variety!  Some photos of the Sweet William from my garden.  I love the smell of them and my favourites are the two tone flowers

Thank you, thank you!

To all you lovely people who have been visiting my blog even though I haven't blogged since the 28th May.  Hopefully I should be posting a bit more,  now that my op is over and done with and I've rested for 4 weeks of the 6 that I was told to take things easy and no lifting.  I've still got a couple of weeks to go so I probably won't be making any cards until after my holiday at the end of July.  I haven't been idle though, knitting and sewing have been keeping me busy.  I'll have to download some photos and blog about what I have been doing

Thanks again my blogging friends! xx
