I dug a small pond in our backyard. This year it was full of tadpoles. The tadpoles have now all turned into little frogs. They are so cute! Well, if you like frogs, that is. I took a couple of pictures with my iPhone. The frogs have just lost their tails, and are now sitting on the lily pad leaves. I just love watching them! Unfortunately, our dogs do, too. Except they want to eat them. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you may be able to make out the little critters.
Our first "day lily" planted by the pond has blossomed today, so that makes me really happy. Our backyard is all clay unfortunately, and I have a terrible time trying to get anything to grow.
