It really is like the Discovery channel here at our house this year! Today I thought I saw a spot of dirt in the pool. When my Dad checked it out closer, we realized that the clump of black was a slimy mass of frog eggs. So THAT's what those frogs have been doing in my pool late at night!!! I watched three of them jump in there last night when I let the dogs out for the last time. Not wanting tadpoles in the pool, and sure they wouldn't survive there, Dad fished (no pun intended!) the eggs out very gently and I put them in a bucket with mostly fresh water, trying not to disturb them. We're going to share most of them with Kallie's kindergarten class and our neighbor who's 5 and in love with frogs. We hope they will turn into tadpoles and beautiful Rio Grande Leopard frogs and live happily ever after! Any advice on tadpole development will be greatly appreciated!
Here are some of the things that were happy in my gardens this weekend. Notice the new lantana TREE that I pruned up growing uninvited in my veggie garden!

Thanks for visiting my blog
I'm glad you've found my garden journal. Perhaps the only thing greater than the satisfaction of nurturing a seed to a seedling to a blooming or producing plant is the joy of sharing nature's bounty with others. Whether I'm peddling garden tomatoes we can't possibly eat or sharing stories about why the verbena isn't doing well, my garden connects me. It connects me to the earth, to our wildlife friends, to fellow gardeners, and, to myself. So, welcome. I hope you'll feel connected here.
