Hello Dear Rose Friends as we enjoy the transformation which occurs after a massive rain event … lush green grass, an abundance of beautiful roses and our rows of crepe myrtle are flowering too!

Q. What do frogs wear on their feet? A. Open toad sandals.

Since the rain, toads croaking in the night have woken us up but we’re happy that we share our space with these wonderful creatures! Sure enough, there’ll be lots of tadpoles before the swale dries up again by the end of February…

Frog Spawn
