* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Froggies!
« on: August 31, 2011, 11:49:07 am »
Well this is just delightful :D

I have a tiny, TINY garden, all concreted over so I've never expected much in the way of wildlife.  However, I do have a rather messy garden, being a messy person - stacked unused pots in one south-facing corner, propped upright despite jumbled mess by a miniature wire-frame greenhouse, 3-layer deep pots filled with bursting herbs and vegetable plants, old half-bricks, bricks and tiles used to prop up pots to appropriate heights.  My garden is also joined (no fence barrier, we both access our gardens from the same side gate) to a very slightly larger neighbours', which is mostly paved but includes dug beds with hedges, and very large shrubs.

It seems the combination of the two has encouraged some friends!  Froggies!

Now, what can I do to make my garden more appropriate for them to live in, and does anyone know how to build decent overwintering shelters out of random tat?

Build some mounds of leaves and clippings as they become available, and don't disturb them again until things warm up next spring.  Your native froggies overwinter in streams and soggy leaf litter.  You could dig a shallow hole and line it with clay slip/clay-rich soil before covering it with leaves to help retain water.
