My singing frogs

I have been serenaded by frogs this spring which I love.  It reminds me of camping and is very relaxing.  When we went to take the winter cover off the pool, we had hundreds of tadpoles swimming on it.  We have never had that before.  I didn't get a picture of them but wish that I had.  A few did make it to out little "pond".  Lauren wanted to save them all.  All I could see in my head was a backyard teeming with hopping frogs!  Needless to say, almost all perished while the water was being pumped off the cover. 
After we took the cover off, we found that there were two frogs hanging out in there.  Parents to the brood??

This little guy (or girl) looks dead, but everytime I would move the hose, it would follow and get back into the same pose.
 They must not like the sunshine.   
Taking a break from a swim....

I put chemicals in the pool tonight.  I didn't see the frogs and bet they won't be taking advantage of the swimming hole anymore this summer.

My favorites as well. Their singing is the best. :)

They are so cute! I just love that last picture. We have hoped for years that frogs would find our pond, but so far none have.

Your pond looks like such a great environment for frogs. We have had our pool for 9 years and have just had frogs in that last couple years.
