The toads are singing! But.... :(
I was so surprised to hear them trilling away on Sunday afternoon, a full 5 days than last year (and it has been such a horrid winter, I thought that they would be "late"). The weather has been quite warm, in the 70's and low 80's, but tomorrow the temps will not rise above 50, and down to 23 tomorrow night. Does anyone know what the toads will do? Will they leave the pond and dig under mulch/ leaves/ etc. to wait for warm weather to return?
I so love their "music". And it really is music to my ears, after such a cold winter that seemed to go on forever! I did some flower bed cleaning this afternoon and watched them alternately climb on the rocks lining the pond and "sing", then float around on the water's surface. We only ever have 3 or 4, and I don't know what happens to the tadpoles, but these little guys are a delight. :)
