Where are my frogs?

Normally by now the frogs would be here and I would have two ponds full of spawn but this year …..nothing? Have they decided the cat is too meddlesome? She pats them on the back to make them squeak -an awful thing, a froggy howl- until they hop away, then she chases after them and starts over again.

They normally visit in two busloads- a couple of frogs come early and then 3 weeks later -on the night of the first good full moon- the rest of them turn up. Maybe the eclipse confused them? The second lot only ever come once there is no danger of freezing – so maybe we have another cold spell still to come.
