Some weeks ago I saw a big toad/frog in the yard. I also saw a couple of small ones. Didn't think much of it, just happy to see some bug eaters.
A week or so ago, I was sitting out on the porch after dark watching Netflix on the computer. I heard something moving around in my flower bed. I thought, oh no, an armadillo or skunk or SNAKE. I grabbed my little flash light and sneakily peered over the porch looking with my flash light. Low and behold, it was only that big ole fat toad.
On another recent day when I was watering the plants on the porch, that big fat toad jumped out of one of the pots and scared me to death (I had recently killed a Copperhead in that same flower bed). I thought hum, that guy is living around here I'm going to have to keep my eye out for him.
As it turned out, he now lives in that same pot. I see him almost everyday except when he has gone "out to eat". I kept hoping to catch him out to get to photos of him, but had only seen him either out of the pot (empty) or the pot was filled with a big fat toad.
Today while watering the flower beds it was my lucky day. They boy was seeking a snack.
I was persistent however, and got some good views.
I keep that pot moist as he burrows down into the pot to sleep. Sometimes I have to look hard to even see him in the pot and sometimes he's easy to see.
I took a couple of photos of the "empty" hole in the pot.
All he needs now is his own address!
Encourage One Another, continuing the journey on fresh paths.
Blessings and love to you, xoxo.
