TADPOLES IN THE POND

Yeap, tadpoles, countless of them... in the pond...

And it had to be our neighbor to discover that for us...heeeh...

The creatures are still very minute... visible only with concentration in the rather light-chocolate colored pond...

Had been wondering why the croaking suddenly stopped some nights ago...

Nature apparently had it planned all along...

Like the nasturtiums wilting away once they flowered and seeded, the frogs stopped their love-croaking once they goaled-in with each other...

They is no further need to waste energy crooning in the dark...

Smart, eh...

By the way, to keep the nasturtiums flowering, we pick the flowers for our salads...

They look marvelous sitting on the greens and they taste pretty good too, I must say...
