Regularly throughout the summer we have been startling a toad hopping about our porch in the evenings. When I rescued some plants from a pitch pile and put them on the porch to see if they would survive, he decided to set up house.
So out of curiosity I filled a pot half way with dirt and put it down next to the plant.
Of course, he’s redecorating to suit himself. So now there’s a lot of dirt kicked out on the porch. He has also decided the dog’s water dish makes a great bathtub. The dog won’t drink after him. 🙂
I love that he spends part of his day with us. I hope he lives a long, long life. Did you know that they can live up to 30 years? Soon he will be looking for a place to hibernate. They can dig holes up to three feet deep to spend the winter in. And I have a whhhhhole lot of loose, just dug up earth all over the yard! 🙂
