Sometimes our gardens hold surprises for us. Unexpected pleasures are always appreciated, and one was encountered today. Our Ronnie Joy was investigating her yards’s eligibility for the National Wildlife Federation’s Backyard Habitat certification, to her surprise a loud sound from a small space was heard. It was only a green frog, but having a frog in her pond, along with her birdhouses and feeders, trees, natural native plantings, just complemented the yard she has so lovingly built over the years.
This is just to say, that members can and should take a survey of their existing backyard areas, and large or small, every one of us should look into this exciting program.
