frog crossing


Kyle, my nephew, is staying with us this summer.  I gave him a few things to do for me to earn some money, one of things was to make a rock climb, so that the frogs can get up into the pond.   I miss not seeing frogs.  We want to get the pond back into the ground, but it is going to take some time.  We have so much other things that need to get done first.

The horse shed needs some repairs, the horses are locked out until it is fixed.  Then we need to get hay done.  Still working on getting engines ready for shows this summer, and we have a leak in the dining room.  We are going to do a patch job for now and think hard about replacing the addition with a new and wider one, so that we can move the kitchen.  I don't think we are really up to spending 50 to 70 grand to replace it though.  Decisions, decisions.

I like the look of your rock ladder for the frogs. Great idea having the rock ladder. We have never put in a water feature because of the mosquito problem around here. You have given me much to think about. Hope all your projects turn out easy to accomplish.

Thank you for the lovely comments. Callie, we put gold fish in the pond and they keep down on the larvae. Crystal, it sure is nice having someone that is willing to work for some extra cash around the house. threecollie, thank you so much, we sure love having you stop and see us. We aren't able to visit enough.
