Frozen Frogspawn

Perhaps the frogs know something we don't, but we already have two batches of frogspawn in our pond. Unfortunately the pond is frozen today, and I'm not sure they'll survive.

A couple of weeks ago we went to Kingston Lacy to see the snowdrops. There are other flowers also opening up, and trying to welcome spring. This hellebore was particularly attractive.

Another unusual sight was this family of Kune Kune pigs, which are evidently originally from New Zealand. The youngsters were born in early December, and are thriving. I believe they are keeping two of them to breed at the estate.

    1. Yes, the pigs are gorgeous. I'm always to be found near the animals, given half a chance.
