Pond Life

At the pond everything is bursting with life, the clouds of frog spawn seem to be breaking up into single cells with black specks in the middle which I hope mean they are ready to hatch into tadpoles. The shapes of the jelly like clouds are thrilling, some submerged, some forming bigger masses; while at the other end of the pond the tiniest tadpoles are sunning themselves on a shallow rock.

    1. Me too Ronnie and there are swarms of them in the pond now, hoping there will be enough room for me to swim!


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
