Fresh Pick: “FROG & TOAD U R INVITED IN”

Posted by limabeads on July 18 at 09:15 am

This Fresh Pick was designed by KATHERINE T on Jul. 10, 2013.

KATHERINE T says: While working in the garden with my son he uncovered first a toad which I directed him to put in my garden to eat the bugs. I keep broken pots so the toads have a place to stay if they would like to. Shortly after he found the toad up popped a tree frog which I haven't seen in our yard in quite a few years! I'm happy to see nature be content to stay in my garden.

Fresh Picks are color and texture arrangements to help you get inspired—you can browse all Fresh Picks, or design your own!

    If your garden is as beautiful as your picks, Katherine, I would think it would be full of toads and frogs who want to call it home.
    Thanks for sharing the story – - -

    Fantastic garden, KT!! I am jealous!! :) I try for the look you have but when the city redid my street and the energy co. cut down some trees, I was reduced to moving my gardens to different areas and I lost some plants in the process! It is rebuilding time for me this year. :) I hope I can have something like your gardens by this time next year.

    Thank’s This is from several years of work but I’m still not finished yet. It will still be some time before everything is groomed the way I want it.
