As you can see from the image to the right, I made the mistake of buying cheap candy to fob off the “trick or treaters” and now my hat keeps slipping off my head.
While on the subject of frogs; I encountered a common frog last night who had come in out of the rain. Frogs are obviously getting more nesh these days. They should be starting to hibernate at this time of the year, but the weather has been rather mild recently. Actually, the frogs come in to this passageway in search of slugs, which in turn are attracted to the bag of bird seed that is kept there. Gardeners, frogs are your friends, consider a pond, even a tiny one and a log pile to encourage frogs and toads to eat up your slugs and snails. There is a useful website about attracting frogs to your garden, here.
