Photo Challenge ~ Backyard Visitors – or – Mr. Toad’s Photo Shoot

My new container garden is attracting a few visitors already! I’ve seen lots of butterflies and other tiny critters fluttering about; and there is a fat little toad living in the marigolds. He seems to like spending most of his time dug down into the dirt of the marigold pot but once in a while he comes out to play. I think he has a lot of fun romping around the gravel and hanging out in the tipped over flower-pot; which is where I found him yesterday afternoon. I guess he was in the mood for a photo shoot because hung around striking one pose after another for several minutes before heading back into the marigolds.


I hope he invites a few friends to visit his summer home; I’ve heard we are expected to have a lot of bugs about over the next few months because of the mild winter.


Be Like The Bird

Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings. ~Victor Hugo
