Oh dear, Sherbet has a little bit of a shock this morning!
Oh my goodness I have something to tell you. I had a little bit of a shock this morning.
I had just been outside to fill up the hedgehogs bowls with milk as I always do every morning, and when I went out ten minutes later to start my garden tasks guess what I saw ?
There sitting right in one of the bowls of milk, was a very huge, knobbly skinned bullfrog. I jumped back with surprise as I certainly did not expect to see him in there. What a very naughty bullfrog indeed ! He was not a usual visitor to my garden, all my own frogs live in my pond and I know all of their names.
I imagine he must have been hungry but I did not know that bullfrogs drank milk ! Well maybe they don't but my other thought was,.... Oh dear, I hope he or rather she, is not laying eggs in my hedgehogs milk !!! Then I thought if it is a BULL frog can it be a SHE, because I thought bull named things were boys, like cows are, well not cows but bulls !!!! Oh dear , now I was getting very muddled up indeed! The problem was, that made me a little bit worried because if there were baby eggs in the milk ( Pearl has told me they were called frog spawn) I did not want to disturb them but on the other hand I had to make sure that the milk was all clear of eggs for my hedgehogs because I do not think they would be happy drinking bullfrog eggs for breakfast. What was I to do ? The frog had jumped away by then.
Ah yes! A good idea came into my head and I knew what to do. I saved the bowl of maybe egg layed in milk and put it under the hedge and then I gave my hedgehogs a new fresh bowl of milk.
Phew, that was a big problem I had to solve this morning but all is well now so I am just sitting in my garden relaxing after my morning ordeal. Love from Sherbetx
