    congratulations on the new arrival! Many wasted hours ahead!
    I go and have a look round the pond regularly to see if mine is ok. I also say hello to him and ask him if he's ok... ;)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    How lovely GD. You had so  many problems early on with the pond, so that's a real vindication and reward for all your hard work  :)
    I have a lonely single one who had a bout of croaking and excitement recently, so I hope he/she can find a mate at some point. I think yours might be a bit too far away though  ;)
    Fingers crossed for both of them!
    Must have been a male according to this Fairy 
    Every different species of frog makes it’s own special sound and it is only the male frog that can croak.  They have a small sac in their throats that vibrates the air as they slowly let it out.

     A young man wandered over and started poking at the frogs with a twig he'd picked up, making them jump.  Would I like him to catch some for my lunch? he asked.  "No thanks, I'm vegetarian."  "Alors, ils sont verts!"  Well, they're green!  The French really don't get vegetarianism.
    That made me laugh lots!  OH is vege, and is often offered snails and frogs legs as a ‘non-meat’ option.
