Earlier today I was looking around the garden and just checking plants. I was looking at a Sunflower plant and something jumped out that looked like a rat or mouse. It startled me and I jumped back. But then I caught a glimpse of it before it ran off into the bushes.
Last Spring I caught a bunch of tadpoles and put them in my pond. During the summer almost daily I was seeing little toads sitting up on the water hyacinth. So I would take them and set them loose in my garden.
I never knew if they made it but I hoped they did. After today I am sure the toad I saw was one of the toads I let go. I let them go when they were about the size of your thumbnail now the toad has a mass about the size of my palm. I am pretty happy that it made it and is still around. Just hoping it stays around. I was thinking about putting little containers with water around the garden so it can keep cool when it needs to.
