Colors & Sounds of (False) Spring

I noticed the finches are getting their spring colors. And the tree too. Just a quick shot through the window.
Not to worry. They were fed after the photo.

The nearby frogs are singing up a storm each evening. The stars and the moon must have them in the mood. And, get ready... LAST NIGHT Frog returned to our little pond by the patio! If it isn't Frog, then I'll say the early frog gets the pond. Last year, he didn't arrive until May 20th. Here is a picture of him.

For those of you still white with snow, you might like to know that this is really our early false spring. We'll go back into cold & gray in Apr/May and cannot hope for regular better weather until July! Even then it won't be what most of you call a summer.

What beautiful birds! Very exotic compared to ours. Glad your frog is back...ours in the pond are just starting to sing.

Fantastic coloured birds how lovely. Was the rock soup tasty, I never thought of trying that!!!!!! We could have a 'greens' wheelie bin for £25 per year, just got no where to store it!!!

So cute! I love the little finches, and sparrows too. I have the red finches in my garden as well, but only wish I had a frog! How wonderful.
