Fun indeed! What a camouflager he is!


I see it now! What fun!

I can't believe you have filapendula! Have you posted on it? I just added the rubra here and would love to see other's experiences with it.


He's a clever fellow hiding so well and keeping cool, too! Love the pretty blue allium, hope you figure out his id! Inquiring minds 'need' to know so it can go on their list! gail


I can testify, toads are difficult to see. I almost stepped on one the other day.

I love verbascum too but it is so short lived. I managed to keep one going for three years but that's a record here. I don't know if it's my heavy soil or just the nature of verbascum. Mine was Southern Charm just a little lighter colored than yours.


That blue Allium is gorgeous and so delicate looking. Everything I see seems to be delicate today! Hmmmmmm
I can't find the toad. I might see him but not sure. Must be these tired old eyes. I can't see close with my contacts and usually have to put reading glasses on over them but this year they put a near in one eye and a far in one eye and your brain adjusts to that and you can see close and far away. But I'm starting to notice close getting harder to see. LOL But it was a challenge trying to find him.


That toad sure has good camouflage. Even when you said where to look it still took me awhile.
Gorgeous rose! I've been doing a bit of that moving too. I found an Astillbe trying to bloom under two hostas. Glad those flowers, like your verbascum don't give up too easily.


Kathleen I love your toad girl ! Can I borrow him for here to eat some nasty bugs in my garden ? LOL
Your pictures are always gorgeous : )


Toads are good fun.

inadveretent farmer that last picture! Your flower pics are stunning, Kim


Looks like you found some hidden treasures in the garden. That toad did a great job of cameoflaging himself in the dirt huh? ;)

How fun!! And yes, our vantage point in the first photo would have been yours as you stood in your garden. Great looking little toadie! :-)
