Riotous spring




Any doubts that spring had finally arrived were dispelled yesterday by a honeybee trapped in our greenhouse (and safely liberated) .........



............ celandines coming into bloom all over the garden ...........


........ and frantic frog activity in the garden pond.


Since the frogs first emerged from hibernation the pond has frozen and thawed several times, but the chilly spring doesn't seem to have .....



.... dampened the frogs' ardour.


By this afternoon most of the females had left the pond, looking somewhat slimmer and leaving behind massive quantities of frog spawn.
