Tiny Froggies

I promised you ford news and glory be, it seems the tarmac fairy’s rather more thorough older sister the concrete fairy has visited:

But that’s not all. For those of you holding your breath on the question of whether the tadpoles would make it out of the ditch before it dried up … you can breathe now (as can the tadpoles) – they’ve grown their legs at last and have been venturing out onto dry land.

Today the other half took his camera down to record the moment properly.

    Down here in the Surrey borough of Waverley (voted rural borough with the highest standards of living in the UK, apparently, as proudly announced by our local rag the Haslemere Herald) the frogs are now full-grown, owing no doubt to the earlier advance of spring down south.

    Unfortunately, that now makes them vulnerable to falling into people’s swimming pools and drowning. Perhaps the swimming pool hazard is not one they face in Rabbie Burns’ country, whether that’s because of the Scottish weather, or because D&G doesn’t have the pretext to be as smug as the Haslemere Herald, I wouldn’t like to guess
