A natural history and gardening blog based on our garden in Pensby, Wirral, Cheshire, but with very occasional excursions farther afield.
Saturday, 2 August 2008
As I have done a fair bit of gardening the last couple of weeks I have disturbed quite a lot of frogs from their hiding places in the ponds, water features, vegetation, and even sitting on top of a dwarf conifer. They have been of various ages and sizes from the smallest – probably last year’s tadpoles – to a few fully grown three, four or five year olds. This is one of the latter, sitting on the path wondering where to go next to avoid this disturbing influence busy weeding around him.
Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog. This is a word verification free, family friendly blog, so everything I share here is for all ages. I am a happily married man in my late sixties who lives on the Wirral peninsula, near Liverpool, in the UK.
I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
