First spawn in the pond

I noticed a pair of frogs in the pond on Friday. There was also a solitary frog on its own.

This morning I noticed two small clumps of frog spawn floating in the pond, one in the middle and the other on a shallow ledge.
Our cat has also notioced the action going on in the pond. The chances of her catching a frog are vertualy zero as the frogs react to my slight movements a metre or more away in the conservatory. We did need to rescue a couple of frogs frpom her last year. They would scream when our cat gently patted them, which effectively made our cat very wary of them.

Love your frog (and cat) pictures. Send some my way (frogs that is, not the cat... although lovely I don't think it will get on with our local moggies!). We could do with some spawn. Although maybe the frogs knew that the snow was coming. 4 inches yesterday... Jane
