At the Pond 2017

It's one of my favourite times of year, spring!
We spend more time outside exploring the many parks in our community.
One of my favourites is the pond.
This morning we were on the hunt for frog eggs.
We scoured the edges of the pond looking in the grasses,
scooping lots of dirt and rocks with our nets.
No luck finding frog eggs but we did find this big clump of eggs
that I believe are salamander eggs.
We had a good look then put them back in the pond.
We did find other interesting things as we searched.
This little clump of spiddle had perfectly formed water
We found seeds spread on the ground and guessed
it was for animals to eat.

We didn't find frog eggs but I was lucky to get a call last night
from a friend who had found some.
She shared some of her tadpoles with us.
So we prepped a new home for them.
We added plants that we pulled from the pond
and buckets of water.
