DIGGING DEEPER: Wood Frogs - Harbingers of Spring in Our Winter Gardens

Anybody who has talked much with me about gardening or landscaping has surely heard of my love of water gardens. I’ve built them in every place I’ve lived since 1970, and have found that the usual pond with koi (aka fancy goldfish) held little appeal to me and certainly didn’t enhance the natural world around me. In fact, over the years I have never found any fish – native or otherwise, that didn’t reduce or eliminate the best part of small water gardens – FROGS AND TOADS - nature’s musicians.
