So good! 🌸
I have several friends who suffer from insomnia, and you can bet they’re going to get a link to this. I hope it brings them a smile, as it did for me.
Love that toad.
Me too. I am going through so much right now I find myself tired until I lay down, then my mind starts racing!
This is a really great pic
ribbit! Lovely poem and photograph.
my grandchildren love your toad!
That is one fat and happy wood frog – lots of good eating in your garden apparently! They overwinter in leaf litter, so leave a pile for them at the edge. 🙂
ah wood frog
I’ll leave him a leaf pile!

Nice Toad, pity we hardly ever see them these days.
