This blog is a bit of a ramble through my life. I'm a wife, mother, small-time farmer and slightly obsessed quilter - both art and traditional. Oh, and I live in New Zealand.

Frogs in the Pond

It's raining today, and it rained yesterday.  Good rain, the heavy saturating sort, the sort we need.  Our water tank is full, I can hear the creek running from the house, the ducks are happy and the sheep are stoic.

I went up to check the pond when there was a little break in the weather.  I took my camera because I could hear a chorus.  And sure enough, I could see three of these guys hanging out in the water.

Can you see him?  He's a green or golden bell frog.  Introduced from Australia.  I'm happy to have them around - they are a good indicator as they find sprays and chemicals very toxic.

I wandered around for a bit, fed the chooks (collected MORE eggs, groan, time to give some away) and then it started to rain again.  So it's an inside day for me today - I might go quilt ;)


  1. Oh beautiful frogs.....they make me think of my daughter, she loves them.

  2. We've enjoyed the rain too, it soaked in well. I"m sure there is more about. Great froggy pics! Hope you had a good day quilting :-)
