Hi, Mr. Toad.

Brenda's Arizona said...

Your back yard? How fun. Can you hear him at night/dawn?

Diane AZ said...

Hi Brenda, when the monsoon rains start, he will be calling for his mate at all hours, sounds like a sheep.

Now there's a toad that knows the right places to hang out this time of year!

My computer is acting really strange hope this posts...

I can honestly say that besides the cicadas, the toads drives me crazy especially at night... I have gone out with the hose to drive them away...


I guess you don't have dogs ? or do they know not to bite ? I have to keep an eye on my boys .

cheers, parsnip

I wish I could be in his place! It's so hot!

Diane AZ said...

Hi Parsnip, I don't have any dogs. Toads can come and go freely into the yard, but I usually only see one toad each summer.

Gaelyn said...

Very nice of you to operate the local toad pool.

Toads come to your yards? How fun is that?

Sweet! A toad in the pool, now all it needs is a toad stool!

Stephanie said...

He is your pet? I got a shock when I scrolled down the page. The eyes... gosh... so big... eventhough look sleepy... all toads look scary to me he he...

Love it! We once had a toad in our yard. So enthralled were we that we captured it and took it back to the pond so it would live. We aren't that good with remembering to water and feed them... ;)

Evelyn said...

They must be unlucky to end up living in the desert - but lucky to have found a swimming pool!

Clytie said...

What an important looking Mr. Toad! That big huge swimming pool all to himself! The lucky little guy!

Arasu said...

Nice pool for the toad to live with decorations and plants around!

It is cool that toads come into your yard. This fellow seems to be enjoying his private pool.

Lindy MacDuff said...

Great images! I never thought about it before, but you are correct - they do sound like sheep!

How very cool! This year I had a gecko and a tiny lizard living on my balcony but they seem to be gone after the big storms last weekend...
