Frog Spawn in February!

Yes, our pond is a seething orgy of frogs spawning.   This is more than two weeks earlier then the last two years!
Almond and apricot trees are close to blossoming.   I will be watching carefully for any frosty nights in case the trees need fleece to protect them.


  1. Did you happen to notice the position of the spawn? Although this probably applies more to streams and brooks
    for the positioning is an indication to the future weather. Thus if it is in the middle it indicates a dry summer and if near the banks a wet & stormy one.

  2. I think the spawn is in the usual place in the pond - mostly near the edges where it is shallower.
