Expecting rain

The forecast is for rain and we will be thankful if we get a reasonable fall, however looking at the forecast on a website is not the only indicator that rain is on the way. We have lots of ants coming inside the house, looking to build their larder supply and I noticed a couple of Striped Marsh Frogs sitting next to the ponds ready to start calling when the rain starts. 

Mating will be their main interest and the right conditions for the tadpoles to grow. Until now we have not seen many frogs this season due to the very dry summer but looks like we are about to see a move to wetter conditions.
