Thank goodness we had rain overnight Saturday, as well as the big dump over night last night. We haven't had significant rain in weeks. Brief showers, but not enough to fill the frog pond. Tree frogs croak on the branches, in vain, since there is nowhere to lay eggs. This guy sits in our mailbox waiting for night when he can find a meal.
The leopard frogs sit in the dewy grass until the twins scare them onto the gravel. The pond is a great place for the twins. They do not realize, however, that the lily leaves cover the water.
The bog is getting shallow as August heat causes them to evaporate.
We have been in the forest grabbing rocks for the garden.
I found a salamander.
Buster helped me! I buried it under the leaves, convinced Buster to take off, and we moved away.
Such fun in the wetland. Buster took a flying leap for feline kind.
Buster looked like a drowned black rat!
