Hi Karen, I have a small water garden and I really enjoy my frogs. They are so patient waiting for a meal to fly by, I can sit for hours watching them. Here is the King of the Pond

From big to tiny. I get these tree frogs visiting my yard. You hear them but seldom see them, let alone getting one to sit on your hand for a picture.

Great site! I had a gray treefrog take up squatters rights on my philodendron plant this summer, now he is in my house, didn't notice until it was too cold to put him back outside. Love to hear him though, makes summer seem closer somehow. I don't want to get him out from between the nested pots where he likes to hang out to get his photo, but have one nice shot of a froggy couple who live in our Koi pond.

Neat picture, looks like they have some electricity going on between them. LOL

This one cracks me up, This is the "Fairy of Lost Things" Now I don't think froggie is lost, the water garden is right in front of him.

Oh, I am just loving these pictures!

Shame my camera misbehaves often, but even though this one
is blurry, I love it.

This is a Pseudacris crucifer (Spring Peeper)

He looks a bit mad at me for disturbing him, don't you think.

Thanks Ladyg for sending me this way.
Hi Wuvie, I know you have seen my pic before but I would love to post them again.
These guys all hang out at the Birdbath Pond. They are fun to see but mostly just sun themselves on the edge of the pond.

Sad to say that these guys aren't friendly or crawl into cute photo-op spots. The minute I get close they dive for the water.

Sometimes they invite a friend over to play. Although I'm not sure that Robin wouldn't make a tasty snack for a bigger frog.

I don't know if I can have frogs here. It gets real cold and I havn't been here long enough to see any frogs. No pond here either, but I'd love to have one if I can keep it from freezing in the winter months.

For right now this is how I enjoy frogs. At least they don't freeze.

Marti Thumbs up

Yes freezing is an issue. Mostly they just burro down in the bottom of the pond and if it is deep enough they are fine. I have a pond heater that keeps some of the pond area open to provide oxygen to the water. But last year I had to replace my old heater and the new more energy efficient one just isn't doing the job. mostly it keeps an open hole but during a period of freezing rain it froze in and when we had a thaw afterward I found some dead frogs and fish. Now with this heavy snow I just can't tell if it is open or not. Guess we will see what has survived this spring. I have some pretty good sized fish out there. I can tell you I won't be using this heater next year. Here is a picture of the pond where these frogs have been living. It is an Antique cement birdbath with a hole that runs thru it. There is a concrete well approx 3 ft deep and 5 ft wide. With a pedestal in the center to sit my birdbath on. We put a pump in the bottom of the well and ran flexible pipe thru the well pedestal and the birdbath pedestal to create a small fountain effect. The fountain is just enough to break the surface not disturb the birds and then the water runs over the edge and back into the well. The bottom is filled with water plants and fish. The frogs just moved in and up until now have done very well.
Here is an old pic I know I have some better ones in the other computer.

I like that idea. I'll have to see what I can do about a pond this summer. Should it be in full sun or what?

Marti, I have a small water garden, it gets sun most of the day. If you want to have blooming water lilies sun is a must. But sun = algae bloom too. Frogs don't mind algae, they like to sun bathe, but they will sit in the shade if it is really hot. So plan on an area where it gets some sun.
