just an update on my frogless pond- we now have three different frogs!

The only difference has been that with the last year of rain the plants around the pond have thickened up tremendously. I think the lack of cover around the pond was the deciding factor.

So hope this helps others attract froggies.

Don't take a cutting from a plant that has taken over a vacant block just because it's free.

jealous!! I just don't seem to be able to attract them. Have always planned on nabbing some tadpoles from a neighbour but I never get around to it!

I have to pretend the crickets in my garden are frogs - everyone else thinks they are frogs, so I guess I can too if I want! They are the weirdest looking things. Should take a photo one of these days... only I would be too lazy to post it :wink:

This is one of the little dudes that lives in the drain hole (top left of photo) of my laundry tub. He 'talks' to me when I use the tub or the washing machine (or maybe he's telling me off?)
Theres 2 of them at times in the tub.
I have masses of frogs here of different types - in the house, in the garden and lots in the dam just near me. They are really loud just after the rain. And apparently as it's only the 'bull' or male frogs that call it stands to reason that there may be twice as many than what I hear.
They are wonderful! Noisy at times but wonderful! :D

Take my advice..... I don't use it anyway.
