    Here is the biggest toad I have ever seen
    My front steps need to be replaced and when I moved them there he was.

    Carolyn, I love him. Can I have him? He is a very special toad...Bet he has done a great job getting rid of lots of bugs around your steps.

    I could do with having him here as the slugs and snails are appearing all over the garden. He can even bring his family too - the more the merrier. :)

    Thanks Barb and Eileen, but I think I will keep him... he is earning more than his keep evidently. his and few more.

    Carolyn, while I was picking beans this morning, I found a toad sitting under one of the leaves, just enjoying the morning cool. I told him I had seen a photo of one of his cousins on Garden Stew, and I'd happily take his photo if he'd wait while I got the camera. He obviously wasn't interested since he just hopped off. Perhaps his relatives aren't in Ohio?

    No idea Jane but there were many itty bitty toads out and about yesterday.

    Sjoerd, that is one frightening toad.
