I had been anticipating this day, because it is one of the sure signs that Spring isn't far away at all. I heard frogs today! Down off a hill at the end of the yard is a ditch...it holds water all year long...and this afternoon, as I let Scar in from a run on his lead, I heard singing and rejoicing from my amphibian friends that reside there. HA WINTER!!! I HAVE SURVIVED YOUR EVIL COLDNESS ONCE AGAIN, AND I RISE VICTORIOUS! Or something like that, anyway...

Sounds like a gigging party is in order . I too love the sound of frogs, haven't heard them yet this year, can't wait. They don't open the water gate or irrigation here to around April 1st though. We also just got rid of most of the snow, still have some patches in the shade. I reckon they won't be here until we are out of freezing temps.

I love spring, but it would be too soon. I would not mind winter for a couple of more months, actually. Winter going away so soon means global warming taking effect even more than the last few years, and that scares me. Natural course is just fine by me. :) Plus I love winters. The white, soft snow.. the hot hearty food... crisp wind... the blankets and never wanting to leave them... hot showers... Not having to worry about wardrobe much because you will be wearing a jacket on top of it anyway. Of course, too much of anything is bad, but I try to enjoy every season for what it's worth.

Frogs! How cool. When I was a little one there was a huge tree across the street from my grandmothers. At a certain time of year (like now for instance) this huge tree would be just covered with tiny frogs. I loved to go and play with them.

Oh I love that sound and can't wait to hear it. The woods behind my new place are studded with little water holes, and there's a small drainage ditch behind one of the other buildings. So I'm sure to hear them here this year.
