If you follow us on Facebook, you know that Ray had a visitor last night. A couple of years ago, we had a beautiful garden. We delighted in lucious tomatoes, tender crisp sweet peas, fresh parsley, green beans, onions and jalapenos. I wanted so badly for this visitor to take up residence in our garden that I searched high and low for a suitable abode in which he could feel at home.
Alas, Mr. Toad did not see fit to take up residence in our garden, at least not that I ever saw, however last night while mowing, I realized I had a serious little overseer.
He was clearly not impressed by either Ray or me, and though I admit that if I ever happened to brush against him with a bare toe I would probably scream and flail around like a startled bird, and I have no garden for him to keep watch over, I hope he’ll stay around for awhile. I kind of like him.
Aww! I thought it might have been a mouse! Luke likes to stalk the mice in our yard. (http://waywarddogs.com/2012/07/23/mousing/) I wish we had some frogs and toads!
I grew up on a farm with plenty of toads and the occasional frog… they are pretty cool but I would probably scream if I touched one unexpectedly! I hope he sticks around for you!
Hehehe, that toad house is perfect! That toad was awfully silly not to stick around. I hope this new little guy does 🙂
