If you don't like frogs, look away now . . .
It's Frog Central here at the moment. There are an awful lot of boy frogs, and a few girl frogs, the latter being outnumbered about 10 to 1!! When a new girl frog appears, there is a lot of . . . activity. Keith said yesterday, those frogs are fighting out in the pond. I had to put him right, it was love, not war!
Top and above - the main pond. There must be 30 or 40 frogs in here.
Above: there were about 20 frogs in here yesterday. The first frogspawn has already been laid.
Work continues - the paint just as it had been put onto the end gable wall overlooking the yard. We need to get some scaffolding up on the section over the shed roof to the right to do the last bit. Today, the attic bathroom wall has been hacked back to the stone and the first coat of lime & hemp will go on this afternoon.
BTW, we had very good feedback from last week's family, and all I can say is, watch this space. They like it a lot, are doing research on schools etc, and we hope an offer will be forthcoming . . .
