Toad in the Hole...

Despite living a considerable distance from the nearest pond, while I was pulling up the petunias (which had become all leggy and sticky) I almost jumped out of my skin when something close to my hand moved. Once my heart rate was back to normal, on closer inspection I could see a common toad…just sitting there…in my small suburban garden!

Within a few moments it’d made it’s way towards the water butt, where there’s a small, muddy bowl of rainwater hidden underneath a tangle of jasmine. I managed to quickly take just one photo before my visitor vanished…
