I was happily cutting the front lawn when I saw a flurry of movement out of the corner of my eye. At first I thought it might have been a mouse or a small squirrel, but when I peered over the ornamental bushes I was surprised to see a frog sitting on the pavement. As it was likely to get squished if it carried on in that direction, it was coaxed back into the garden and onwards into the back garden.
It then decided to pose on the frog shaped sandpit before hiding in the weeds round the base of it.
I’m not certain whether it is a frog or a toad. I’m not aware of any ponds nearby, or any princesses, for that matter.
