My frog pond, water parsnip, purple loosestrife

Down in the frog pond, near the meadow, I found three more bullfrogs. It's been a good year. Last

year, in the drought, the frog pond dried up. I was so sad!

What happened is that the weeds and the purple loosestrife moved in. I've been digging it out, wearing my chestwaders.

The good news is that the deer have been eating the blossoms, which will minimalize the seeds.

I love the floating lily pads. They cover the pond. Daisy was a big helper as I searched the pond for interesting critters. She usually goes in ankle deep. What a girl! She follows me everywhere.
