Whoa, whoa..this is so pretty and such a good idea to create a little pond to keep the frog! I am going to try this as soon as the weather is warm enough. We have plenty of slugs walking our yard!

Glad you like it. I am going to put several through out my yard to get the little buggers.

I guess I shouldn't worry about the mosquitoes breeding in them because of the frogs, right? Mosquitoes are the reason I can't be outside for a long time in the summer. They take all the fun out of being in the garden.

Will my cats kill the frogs?

I love this little container! It looks so pretty!:D It's like a tiny pond. Frogs are adorable creatures, I'd definitely want them to live in my future garden.

This was my first concern also. I do love the look tho.
Maybe a little bigger pot with a very small fountain pump would work to keep the skeeters at bey.

Beautiful! This is a beautiful idea! I totally love it, it looks just like the pond of my neighbors! But a very tiny version! I personally love froggies! They're such an interesting creatures, I remember being so excited when I found one in the garden. It was so slimy and was so jumpy, lol. Cool creatures.

I've been thinking about attracting more frogs to the garden. My one problem with this is that frog song in the evening drives me nuts! It sounds like a bunch of ducks quacking! I do want a pond though, and I've thought of raising mosquito fish, but I understand even those can get out of control.

For now I am planning on doing this:

Oh that little mini pond looks nice! I don't mind the frog songs at night since I grew up to them haha. It's better white noise than TV imo. But yeah I'd prolly put in a small pump just to prevent attracting mosquitoes since I'm highly allergic to them.

That's really pretty! I might have to try making one once the snow melts away. I had a problem with snails last summer eating all of my strawberries. Thanks for sharing.

Kind of makes me want to go down to the local swamp and catch some frogs. They would not be for me, as I do not really live in a place conducive to garden, but I know that I have friends who have to deal with snails. I have always liked catching frogs too, and that would bring back some good memories.

Snails can sometimes be disgusting whenever they enter your rooms. I have never known that frogs can reduce them or stop their multiplication. What I don't like about frogs its their noise and the fact that the can multiply very quickly. I think that the method is preferable since you get to avoid the use of chemicals.

Who said that you can't build a quick and easy little pond. That is a great idea not only to attract frogs but even as a decoration peace. Thank you for sharing.
