The recent warmer weather has seen the pond coming to life. Waterboatmen skitting about on the surface dodging the snails and a brighter green to the pondweed. Although I have a peer into the pond most days it was this morning I noticed something new. A ball of frog spawn. That will give me something else to keep an eye on as I watch it develop and the tadpoles hatch.
UPDATE: Four frogs spotted cavorting in the pond today (10/3/12). Here's one of them.
