Aaaaaaaaah! Tadpoles. Interestingly had to look up Pollywog, never ever heard that one before. Isn’t language interesting?…so varied either side of the Pond. Thanking you, I learnt something new today. Oh. Lovely photo too, reminds me of a thick pea-souper!
language is fascinating – so many, many different names for things and so much music in the sounds. Thanks so much for all your comments I always look forward to what you have to share.

Thank you for sharing me with your readers.
I like the pic. Krysia saved me from looking up Pollywog
Derrick – as Krysia mentioned – so many varied names for things on either side of the big pond. Thank you so much for all your observations and comments – it’s a pleasure to know how things have ‘landed’.
love the picture 🙂
When I saw this image, my first thought was – where the heck is she taking this one? Nicely done!
I love the alliteration of your title.
When I learned about pollywogs, I learned a little song at the same time. Remember this one?
Great title for a mystery-laden photograph! Perfect little poem beneath.
Such great sounds too this time of year!!
Very nice and beautiful!
It is the same in my neighborhood, too! Magic and mystery of life–thank you for the inspiration.
Love your title for this image.
