Garden journal entry


January 19, 2014. Spitterfrog enlivens our little patio pond year round: the water he squirts from his mouth (with a little help from an electric pump) fills the air in our back yard with a constant splashing sound. In the summer, the forceful jet sometimes peters out to a dribble, due to algae or pond muck stopping up the pump filter – but in the colder months, the filter stays clean, probably because algae don't grow and fish aren't active to stir up the muck. So spitterfrog just keeps on going – until it gets really cold. This morning was one of those times when things just got too nippy...
