Froggy Frolicks...

We (Jane, Jacob and myself) are now residing at Whitestaunton about 4 miles outside of Chard to help with things around the King household since my mother-in-law sadly passed away a few weeks back. It's a great place and the wildlife very different from being in Chard. For starters there's a huge pond in the garden that's home to an annual frog gathering at this time of the year. As they gather to mate (around 50+ large adults present at the moment), they become very approachable, in fact if you sit at the side of the pond, they come to look at you! Today this allowed for some great photo ops...although I did feel I was intruding a little:
