No longer an eye sore...

A void area between a path and a shrub bed, hard to maintain and usually an eye sore, is a little more pleasing now using what I had. The green frog is about 40 years old and all are aged with the exception of the gold looking one a neighbor gave me for the project. The large rocks were brought from the creek when my children were young. I finally found a way to put them to use as I elevated them with smalls rocks underneath so the toads can get under. I am going to add two containers at the shady end for tadpoles. I used some mulch from downed trees but some of it is pine bark. I am hoping the pine bark won't hurt thr toads as I have lot's of them. What do you think?

the toads will lov u. it's hot out there. I keep an old cake pan with a rock and a clay pot filled with water for the frogs.

Looks cute! I played with frogs but didn't like toads so don't know much about them (was told thy would give me warts-probably old wives tale) Internet might have more ideas on habitat for toads! Jan

I love your toad garden.

RE: No longer an eye sore...

All you need now is a "Welcome Toads" sign! Your little toad garden looks very inviting...even to us humans! ;-)

Looks adorable. The raised rocks are a good idea for a project I'm working on. Same idea, clearing out an eyesore triangle.
