March of the mini Frogs n Passion, Pond Bits (& no brake pads)


Well the march of cute little mini frogs is upon us (surely a precursor to the 2012 apocalypse ; )

yes saw quite a few under my feet, hope they all make it to the pond and safety

Ok lets start the blog with a few feelgood pics of passion flowers over in the polycave ok?
This just by the door

And yes if I wear yellow you cant see me can you?


what god alone sees (and some small flies)

I was thinking of untangling it and have one or two branches going along the polytunnel it but to be honest I might have to wait !!

Ok and here’s what you came for, even the act of putting the watering can down, little fogger here makes a break for the water

and another!

Ok back to the passion flowers

Fun blog, Stevie. Great to see the baby frogs and the passion flowers looking so healthy, but ........ we can still see the brake pads, you know...... :o)

'...and we'll all stand together'! Great pictures. The pasion flower is amazing and can you send a few of those froglets my way to my 'pond'? Last Summer, I got a frog in the 'pond' that was even less of a 'pond' than this one - just an old tin dustbin lid, which I intended to plant up appropriately, but before I got chance OB mowed the grass and the'pond' filled up with grass clippings and turned all sludgy. Oh dear, thought I, will have to clean that out, only to discover that Froggy had already moved in. So then I had to leave well alone, having no wish to disturb him and send him packing. This year then, I bought a deeper trug-type thing, duly planted it up with aquatics and added marginals for shelter and a couple of stepping stones to facilitate entry and exit, oh and most importantly, a garden full of delicious slugs of every size, shape and hue and... nothing! No frogs, singular or plural. So, if they fancy a change of scene, even just a weekend break, they would be more than welcome.

Love this blog so much Stevie, How did you that? Flowers and buds are numerous , are you using some fertilizer? And the frogs , love them so much it gives me a luck!

23 Jun, 2012


Maybe you should change a name from Polycave to Passioncave, lol.
Wouldn't mind a frog or two in my garden. Got an idea - will stop tidying behind the pots next to the fence - and see what will happenes, lol

oops, forgot to click like!

Stickitoffeetastic comments folks, thanks : )

Lulu I forgot to add the reminder ; )

Junna, I did add my own compost in there when planting but aprt from that just water. The very mild start to the year and warm end to the year let them root in alot so good timing.

TB, well I guess nows the time of year to see if you can get some, if there a big pond around, all over round here so they will come over from the big pond and veg patch. They definately have kept the slugs down so far really well.

GM they are staying hehe!!
ND too many!!! and getting a new flower everyday (so you can imagine how many pics i'll be boring you with)
