At the Woods Pond

Maya and I took two hot cross buns amd went down to the woods pond for a Holy Thursday picnic. The most astonishing thing that we saw was a blob of jelly attached to some stems of grass near the bottom of the pond.  We tried to gently turn it with a stick but it kept blobbing back.  Then we noticed several more.  They were not frog eggs because we know what those look like. 
Then I remembered the salamanders I had seen there the other day, and we looked it up, and sure enough: salamander egg cases.  May apples are popping up, too, about a month early!
