This post could have been about lots of things–camping, weather, gardening, graduations, but nature intervened.
We had a good bit of rain and wind while we were gone for six days, so Dennis (husband) who was mowing asked if I would remove some large branches from the yard. I obliged, but in doing that, I found a toad nestled against the trunk of one of our large maple trees. Since I didn't want him to be hurt, I coaxed him into a small bucket and deposited him in the bushes of our side yard. Sorry—no photo. He did not stay around to say "Thank-you."
May he or she live long and eat lots of flies and mosquitoes.
