A few pics of just some of the many many frogs we dodged on the way round Arthurs Seat a couple of weeks ago. It was a pretty amazing sight. They were all over the place, literally hundreds of them. Ribbit ribbit.
Thanks to the ever changing Google Doodle I've just found out that today is Earth Day. To find out more and add your Act of Green go here - http://www.earthday.org/ My small acts of green today will be unplugging the television, putting out the recycling, walking home and picking up plastic litter along the way. The text below is from Earth Day.
Forty years after the first Earth Day, the world is in greater peril than ever. While climate change is the greatest challenge of our time, it also presents the greatest opportunity – an unprecedented opportunity to build a healthy, prosperous, clean energy economy now and for the future.
Earth Day 2010 can be a turning point to advance climate policy, energy efficiency, renewable energy and green jobs. Earth Day Network is galvanizing millions who make personal commitments to sustainability. Earth Day 2010 is a pivotal opportunity for individuals, corporations and governments to join together and create a global green economy.

The Twisted Silver bracelet below has been chosen by Dawn, one of our recent winners as her prize. "Clementine" is a one-off Twisted Silver bracelet made with puffed banded agate, carnelian and creamy freshwater pearls. This bracelet has around 5ft of Sterling silver in it. The other winner is only known as Chloe, no email was left and no contact details on her out of date blog. So on the off chance anyone knows a Chloe who writes a Dr Who blog, please tell her to get in touch. Her prize awaits.
Firstly a huge thankyou to everyone who entered, altogether there was just over 300 entries with a massive 247 email entries, thankyou. The favourites chosen by entrants were quite interesting, I certainly didn't think the no2 favourite would be anywhere near the top.
