It’s funny how many things we take for granted. It has always been a celebration when a toad is found in the garden. One year even a toad home was created. The toad probably didn’t use it, but we felt better about his accommodations!

It wasn’t until I saw a little toad nestled in my propagating tray today that toad questions exploded.

Did you know that toads are hatched in water like frogs? They remain there for about two months. So where did our toads come from? We have a nice big one in the west garden, a medium sized one in the east garden and now my friend in the propagating tray. Not much water right around our house.

Wild toads don’t have a long life, but a few in captivity live longer. Here’s wishing our three toads a long and prosperous toady life!
