Hoppin' Along

Yesterday, after running an errand I came home and pulled my gas guzzling SUV into the garage. As luck would have it, I happened to have my camera with me and noticed the new little blue buds on the Hydrangea. As I went outside the garage door to take a picture I noticed this little Toad hopping out of the garage. Luckily I didn't run over him!

Did you know Toads live on land while Frogs live in the water?

And here is what I was originally looking at. There are many pinkish-purple Hydrangea flowers this year, but this appears to be the last one to bloom. The two petals that have bloomed so far aren't looking their best. Maybe due to all the rain we've had.

Oh the little toad is so cute Sharon. I wonder if this is daddy toad and baby and mama are under your front porch? Did you know April was national frog month? I have a T shirt that says so, so it must be true. I do hope they give equal time to toads.

I hope you made the pictures large Nancy. He is one unattractive toad. You can even see cobwebs on him in the 2nd picture!

Equal opportunity for all amphibians would only be fair ; )

What a cutie. When you look at the picture in the larger window, his eyes really stand out.
He almost looks prehistoric.

Auntie Sharon, are toads edible?
