The Visitor






















Last year
Last spring I returned from the country with a container of 20 toads (all different ages and sizes), and set them free in my garden...


The fine young toad, pictured above, hopped by our fish pond today, posed for a few photos and then continued on his way.


Prince Charming :)

  1. Lovely thing to do Rosemary, and they are great for getting rid of nasties in the garden. I love that little baby one.

    1. Slowly but surely I will repopulate the suburban area in which I live with Toads! I agree with you, Rosemary, the baby was unbelievably cute and sweet enough to humour us by staying put when we placed him on a lily pad for a photo.

  2. J'aime beaucoup observer ces petits (et moins petits!) crapauds...
    Souvent je les repêche dans la piscine pour les sauver d'une éventuelle noyade!
    Gros bisous merci pour ces belles photos.

  3. Rosemary, great idea! These toads will help you in your garden, I think.
