I’m glad I always carry my camera when I come upon such moments. This tiny little guy was hanging on the latch of the new garden gate to the big garden. He stayed on for the ride as I swung open the gate to let in a truckful of plants. When I left for lunch, he’d climbed up and was resting comfortably. I gently set him free in the grass outside the fence.
We’re really making great progress against summer’s short and intense timetable of planting in our huge gardens. I think I’ll share a little of this little toad’s intrepid spirit…(though not usually one to anthromorphisize.) “Persistence pays! Hang tough!”
