It is raining today and another cold snap is coming.
The back is in need of mowing and clipping and tending in all sorts of ways.
I am surrounded by woods and water. Back bay streams criss-cross through the woods.
Frogs survived the winter.
The big bull frog..he is huge!...is already on the job in the big pond. Between him and the fish, the smallest of which is a foot long, bugs stand no chance.
The smaller frogs are croaking away in the small front pond.
Here is a before look at the woods side of the property and you can click on photos to enlarge them to full size.

|The falls being choked off with new Wisteria and Peppermint|
|The falls at the narrow deep end of the pond. The Scotch Broom is so yellow and bright it reflected back into the camera.|
Some fish are orange, some yellow and some are white. While they look small here, the smallest is a foot long.
|White Rugosa or Beach Rose... still to bloom. Another one climbs up the side of the house.|
|Vinca and Wisteria grow around the perimeter of the house|
|The woods beginning to green up|
The following two photos were taken today out in the rain.
Yes, I got wet!
|Rain on the little Pond|
|Rain bubbles. Smaller frogs are already croaking away.|
Things are beginning to bloom. The miniature roses are coming up again.
