Today Peter went to mow the grass in
the long garden. Imagine his surprise to find that
all the little frogs
are doing a mass exodus from the pond above the
patio wall, up to the top of the garden. They are
probably going to the woods that is the other side
of the stream.
So it looks like we are going to
have long grass for a while. Can I remind everyone
that this is the time for the tiny babies to leave
the pond. Be careful if you are mowing or walking
even. They are only about an inch long, much
smaller than ourselves.
Here you go, some

Just then a little chuckle came from the
other side of the pond, they turned around and saw
a laughing frog
rolling in the dirt.
Once upon a time,
in a land far away, a
beautiful, independent, self assured princess
happened upon a
frog as she sat, contemplating ecological issues on
the shores of
an unpolluted pond in a verdant meadow near her
castle. The frog
hopped into the princess lap and said "Elegant
Lady, I was
once a handsome prince, until an evil witch cast a
spell upon me.
One kiss from you, however, and I will turn back
into the dapper,
young prince that I am, and then, my sweet, we can
setup housekeeping in yon castle with my mother,
where you can
prepare my meals, clean my clothes, bear my
children, and forever
feel grateful and happy doing so."
That night, the princess dined sumptuously
on a meal of lightly sautéed frog legs seasoned in
a white wine and
shallot cream sauce.
One day a frog was
walking along the lane when he met a fox, he

wide mouth frog and I eat flies.
What do you eat?"
The fox said "I suppose I eat
rabbits." and carried on walking down the

and said. "Carrots I suppose!"
further along the lane ended at a river and lying
on the bank was an alligator,
"Hi! Mr Alligator, I'm a wide mouth frog
and I eat flies. What do you eat?
The alligator smiled a huge toothy smile,
licked his lips and with one bound, scooped up the
wide mouth frog. One gulp and he was gone then he
wiped his mouth and said:
