We went to the arboretum this Easter morning and when we passed by the peeper pond I walked around it to record the peepers and frogs. Dennis waited on the path, and when I got back to him he said he had fallen into “a reverie of frogness.” Thus the title of this post.

By contrast, this year these things are just beginning to reveal themselves. Here is what we saw on this spring day that is, thankfully, slower than last year:
