The Pond now has Water

We have a little pond that totally dried up last year.   It has never been a big pond, and we haven’t had fish in it.

Still, it’s a great pond for frogs.  We have five species that I am confident I have heard, and maybe six.  Chorus frogs are always the first we hear, but we also hear American toads, gray tree frogs, leopard frogs and cricket frogs.  Some years I thought that I heard spring peepers, but I was never sure.

The pond now has water in it, but it is far from full.  At least the frogs and dragonflies will have a fighting chance.

The snow we had a few days ago has mostly melted, but the days remain cool–only a few degrees above freezing for highs.  I am ready for spring.

Maybe the frogs are too.
