Shhhhhh. If you listen carefully, you can almost hear them snoring.
Typically, I don't see a little frog head appear until March or April, but these "warm" days have interrupted the winter slumber party for a few frogs. I actually saw a little guy sitting out in the rain the other day--a rare occurrence for Chicago in January. It's such an odd winter this year.
Heck, January is a week down and we haven't had an accumulation of snow yet--which is really strange. I almost miss it. I think.
Remember last year around this time?
You know it's bad when you have to shovel the pond heater. I have to keep an air hole open so that the gasses from the pond can escape, otherwise the fish, frogs, and snails can die from lack of oxygen. I think we had 3 feet of snow over the top of that thing last year. Yuck.
I think I will stop complaining about the warm winter now. It's all perspective, people.
