On Croaking

The camellias are blooming, and tonight the frogs sang for the first time this year. It's early for frogs. This made me a bit sad, as when frogs croak this early in the year, it means it's likely that they'll soon figuratively croak. Either the winter will finally bring snow and freeze the frogs, or it won't, and the lack of sufficient snow will cause the streams and ponds to dry up early and dessicate the frogs.

Early frogs are doomed, no matter how sweet their songs. The only thing that might prolong their lives is a long season of mild rain, to keep the streams flowing and the ponds full without turning them icy cold. The odds of this happening are slim. I'm going to miss those frogs.
