There is a Little Froggy

Little Froggy

There is a little froggy

There is a little froggy
living in my pond,
and of this little froggy
I’m really rather fond.

Small and green with big eyes
that look up at me,
to disturb him would be unwise
so I’ll just let him be.

At night I hear him singing
playful froggy tunes.
Dancing, webbed feet springing,
under the bright full moon.

I’m glad he’s found a safe place,
a warm, soggy home.
I hope he stays forever,
as I’ve named him Sir Jerome.

(and I would really miss him!)

Every Summer for the past 3 years I have entered the Kent Wildlife Gardening Award Scheme. Although small, my garden is a haven for all kinds of wildlife including, butterflies, bees, ladybirds, woodlice, worms, snails, birds (both big and small), foxes and of course my new froggy friend.

One of the best things about entering the competition is that The Kent Wildlife Trust sends out experienced and knowledgeable volunteers to assess your garden. My very first year in the competition I told the volunteer of my dream to eventually have a garden big enough for a pond, so I could create a habitat for frogs, newts and dragonflies. “Why wait!”, she said. She told me all I needed to do was fill the base of a medium / large garden pot with water and put it in a quiet place out of direct sunlight. Sure enough it worked! Why not give it a try and welcome a foggy into your garden. Oh, and if you live in Kent don’t forget to enter the competition.

Good luck!
