I was really lucky to get some garden gifts for my birthday this past week – a toad house, a little sign and a rain gauge. I put the toad house in a shady spot under the parsnips at my community plot. I hope Oracle Toad will appreciate his new home.
I spent an hour or so working in my plot today. I mostly removed mildewed and wilting squash leaves and vines. This gave me good space for fall seedlings. But it also removed shelter where Toad was hiding. I hope he will like his new home.
My new rain gauge is on my window sill as I admire it – a small gnome is holding the gauge. Looks like he will be good company for the other gnomes in my side yard garden.
