Well, isn't he handsome?! Found this toad on the back patio about a month ago. He's a welcome addition to the garden, especially after the slug-filled spring that we had. Hopefully he'll stay and keep the slug population in check.


Sorry for the lapse in postings this summer. Been busy, but also our camera died, so
had to be replaced. Now, onto the posting. This was one of our three blackberry plants
that really produced this year. After the rains, the berries really plumped up and produced. Notice the row covers we had to use - the birds were knocking the fruit off and eating it! :)
