Recently, the lovely Jill posted some fun pictures of a toad, called Charming, which lives around their house.
Well, it so happens, that I too have such a tenant living on my terrace. I am not calling him Charming though, he is simply called Mr. Toad.
I will have to conclude that he is a perfect tenant. He is quiet, non intrusive and keeps my patio free of annoying insects such as mosquitoes and flies. I see him very rarely; only notice movement between my flowerpots from time to time, or among the plants, when I water them. Sometimes he startles me when he jumps, but all this I accept and find amusing.
The other day Mr. Toad was out and about and almost looked as if he was enjoying the sun. I guess even frogs and toads think we have had enough rain by now.
