Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

Just Add Water (Part Two)

As I mentioned before, within 24 hours of filling the liner, I had a water strider show up...the day after that some whirly-gig beetles (I think that is what they are called).  Later, I added some pond water which could have introduced any number of things (and I have some new critters in there now).  As happy as I am to see insect life attracted to the pond, I was thrilled, upon our return from a trip, to hear what I assumed to be a frog's call.  It was after dark, and as I approached the pond, I heard a telltale splash.  The next morning I confirmed with my eyes what my ears had told me.  We have a frog now!
