The Frog, prejump mode

Well There she is the Frog in the pond.  I don't know why she was so peaceful this morning, maybe she has gotten tired of hiding from me.  She seems to be having so much fun in the pond all by her lonesome.  What am I saying there is at least 100 fish to chase around.  Last years Frog seemed to be biting the babies in half.  So far this year I haven't seen any collateral damage.  I'm thinking this is last years frog all grown up.  If not at least this years frog is more gentle with it's companions.  My daughter has asked where does it go in the winter.  I've read they bury themselves in Mud and wait out the season.  We had such a cold winter and the snow was so deep, you would think, the frog would have to burrow fairly deep to stay safe.  The frost line I'm told is at least 2 and a half feet down.  Does a frog burrow that deep?  I haven't seen the Heron this year whom usually eats his share of the larger fish.  All in all its been a fairly prosperous year for the fish.  I've half drained the pond once already, and must do it again very soon for clearer water, but I'm afraid when I do that the frog will run away, she so loves the murky green of the water.

Wisteria... and a Hummingbird feeder at my front gate.
This is called Dutch Broom, I think it helps Heart Eurythmea,  at least that's what I was told by a shopper at Home Depot. The panoramic is my front yard taken with my new 5 megapixel phone pasting the pics together,  Thats an ancient Japanese Maple all wrinkled up on the left,  Its Canopy is breathtaking.  I've planted Roses this year.  Cupcake Pink, Vigarosa Pink(but I think they are going to blossom White.  We'll wait and see.

My dogs!!!

This is my first dog Sydney.  She gets a belly rub this way and then usually sneezes, I wonder why the sneeze.
This is Mandy Elizabeth (Lizzy) our Second dog.  She loves the water, thus she never fails to dip herself into the pond.  The fish don't mind and she doesn't mind them.
This is Gracie (otherwise known as bean) she is a full breed Dachshund, the other two, a pit greyhound mix(we think) and the Labrador, looks like a lab to me. Bean loves to sleep, all day until she takes her walk.
