|Checking for frogs...|
Standing water in a garden is a source of concern to me as I consider how to address drainage problems. I immediately adjust my potential plant list to exclude those that insist on sandy soil and seek instead moisture loving varieties. Not Lilly. To her this is a chance to go puddle jumping! Just put on the cute wellies and jump as high and as hard as you can. After all when else do you get such a good excuse to get soaking wet while fully clothed? Nice deep puddles might have frogs however (I explained to her how tiny our pacific tree frogs were) so she was very careful to check carefully before she jumped….
