Toadies!

Some amphibious creature has spawned in the little goldfish pond behind our house. The past couple of days have been cool and rainy, and in the wee hours of the night, there have been some very croaky sounds coming from the pond. I was just out there looking for evidence of frogs or toads, but of the adults there was no sign. There were, however, enormous masses of gelatinous eggs; they've obviously been fertilized because there are little... things... visible to the naked eye, and they look like they're well on their way to producing another generation of some amphibian or other.

Hell, yeah. We have amphibians. And we're proud of it.

I love the sound of myriad frogs croaking. Have fun!

I've been keeping an eye on their progress... I don't want to miss the hatching!

Awesome! The same thing happens here in our goldfish pond. Usually in the late summer though. My dad hates the noise, but that's just the way of things.
