Toady of Toad Hall

Toady


Spotted this chap in the garden today. He was happily nestling in the weeds (of which there are many ) when I nearly ripped him up with the hoe. Instead I popped him in the birdbath, where he had a swim around, then moved him to under the hedge well away from garden implements. I wonder what he was doing in our garden. I mean, it's not like we have a pond or anything. What do toads eat anyway?

Last time I was down at my sister's I actually trod on a toad (or maybe a frog) that was lurking in the garden. Poor little thing - I felt terrible! It managed to hop away though so I presume it was OK.

And a (French) friend of mine managed to squash one in between the door and door frame of his front door. AWFUL!
