A Frog He Would A-Wooing Go

A frog he would a-wooing go,
Heigh-ho says Rowley,
A frog he would a-wooing go,
Whether his mother would let him or no,
With a rowley, powley, gammon, and spinach,
Heigh-ho says Anthony Rowley.

The frog in the nursery rhyme wanted to marry a mouse, escaped death from a cat and kittens but was swallowed by a duck.  Fortunately these frogs only have eyes for other frogs.

I don't get frogs in my pond, possibly because it has to be netted in winter to keep out the leaves and because it is in a walled garden.  I do see frogs in other parts of the garden.  Maybe I should kidnap a few and move them near to the pond.


  1. We had at least 15 croaking away last week Chris. We have loads of spawn, so u can have lots if you are quick. David
