Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Sounds of Spring

I had a video with the sounds of the frog in the pond.  They appeared for the first time this spring bright and early this morning.  First one that I tried to capture on a video but all I got was the sounds of the birds.  Then later a chorus of frogs singing to the start of spring on this March 1st.  Unfortunately I'm unable to upload it to the video to this blog. I get error messages.  Oh well!

We had lots of rain yesterday.  That may be why the frogs decided to rise out of the mud where they've been buried this winter. My new gauge was put to work recording the amount.
Flowers are busting through.  The hyacinth I bought in flower last spring and transplanted to the garden later.

Safeway had a great buy with daffodils so I bought three bunches.  They were solid buds when I brought them home yesterday afternoon and immediately started to open.
I'd much rather have the stems from others' gardens than pick mine.
Finally here are the frogs without the sound.
Now I wonder if I'll be able to clean out the pond without disturbing the eggs they're sure to lay.

We have feet of snow. I would love to hear the frogs. Thanks for putting the sound in my head.

I have frogs in my water garden so I understand. It is an early spring.
Nice spring photos!

Oh, you are so lucky.. our little pond had to be filled in, and I miss it so! We are going to put one in the garden, hopefully this year. I'll still hear the frogs from our neighbor's big ponds, but I love to see their little green faces!
