A sure sign that spring has arrived.....

Two frogs engaged in the time-honoured and happy state of amplexus in our garden pond yesterday. There is nothing that gives me a deeper sense of primeval wellbeing than observing activity in our pond. When I saw two newts in there last year I could hardly contain myself.
P.S. We did have quite a family debate about whether they are frogs or toads but came to the conclusion they are frogs because of the shape of the spawn they (or their relatives) laid last year.
