A lovely spring walk in the walled garden at Croft Castle this weekend brought me to the pond. I like the pond, but so does everyone else so you have to be patient and wait until almost closing time to have it to yourself.
The beech hedge is still brown, but the weeping willow is showing signs of new life and at last the bench is empty of people.
But look closer at the pond… and the curious ramp in the corner
and you will see there is life …and new life beginning.
As these frogs get fresh with one another.
I think we should leave them alone, don’t you?
