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!
