Frog watch

At the end of February/beginning of March strange new road signs appear:

This is to warn drivers that they are approaching a frog breeding ground and that migratory frogs may be found attempting to cross the road. In order to decrease the death toll, special borders are constructed along the sides of the road and, at intervals, special tunnels have been built under the road to allow the frogs safe passage.

This may make you smile but hundreds of frogs crossing an unprotected road can be quite a safety hazard to the unwary driver.

Besides, Luxembourgers are fond of frogs:

This is a special plate commissioned by the Luxembourg nature protection society and produced by  Villeroy and Boch.

A particularly beautiful specimen put in its appearance on a postage stamp in 1985

    See you on tomorrow for Frogs on Friday. A continuing saga of the frogs who hop into my house without a tunnel!
