He's back! Old Mr. Toad is back!
(Or perhaps he never left?)
I had intended to write about him earlier on the blog after a couple of encounters, but then I didn't see him for more than a week. I thought perhaps he didn't like the fact that I'd cleared out all the leaves in his area, and had moved away.
But this morning, there he was. And can you see the little hole he is sitting down in? It is so cute. I didn't know that toads dug holes for themselves to sit in, just like our dogs do.
And do you notice that he did not dig up the flower in his endeavor? This is significant. I wonder if he could give lessons to the squirrels on living in ecological harmony....
