Does anyone have an name for this little frog I found in my water garden this morning? He is about 21/2 inches long. They don't show well but he has scattered small orange spots on his back.
I love frogs too. I had two in my yard/pond this spring. Both croaked their hearts out this past spring but they were different species because of their different songs. They must have each been lonely without another of their own kind.
Here is a picture of a past visitor.
How you have a good day.
Yeah I am missing the bull frogs That I had at my last house. I only have the little tree frogs here. But they did provide a lot of musical entertainment during their mating season. I am hoping some native OR frogs will find my pond soon.
Your pond looks loaded with water lettuce. I have a few little pieces I'm hoping will multiply. Will it grow in water thats always moving. I have waterfalls in both ponds plus a fountain in larger one. If it won't grow moving maybe I can corrale it into a pot to make it stationary.
Eventually the plants fill the ring and sort of overflow into the plant. Predictably the fish shred a lot of it until even they can't keep up. I suppose the reason I get a lot is because of the fish waste that feed the plants.
The water in my pond has movement but not much of a current, so to speak. With the water moving the plants drift around until they clump up. The only problem is if they drift under the waterfall.. they don't do well there.
I suspect your plants will do well if they get some sun everyday.
