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.
