Spawn has spronged! Spring has spawned! the frogs have been busy busy.
Who'd have thought these gloopy splodges of sticky egg sacs could cause such glee?
yes, I am gleeful.
The frog pool was new in my garden about 3 years ago, after a massive end-of-garden clearance and construction of my girl-shed.
That year I reported here regularly on the progress of my frog-spawn, re-located in a deus-ex-machina fashion from a friend's pond.
The year after that there was no frogspawn. But there were little frogs coming and going.
Last year there was frogspawn but I failed to keep much track of it.
This year I plan to pay more attention as this weird stuff transmogrifies into tiny black commas, tadpoles, big black fat tadpoles without - then with - legs, little bitty frogpoles and finally tiny froglets.
