A couple of visitors


The heat of the last few days has finally broken and although it's still sunny, it's much cooler. Outside the kitchen door I found this blue butterfly slowly opening and closing its wings in the warmth of the morning sun - very beautiful but so fragile; inside was a rare, and not exactly welcome, phenomenon - a furry toad sitting on the tiles. I guess he had either been brought in by a cat or dog who then released him or he'd hopped in when the door was open. Either way, his hind legs were covered in animal hair which leads me to conclude that although he may have been a rare hybrid species it's more likely that I am not the best housekeeper in the world...

LOL OK now I know what you meant by fur covered frog. I was so confused earlier! LOL

HA! Yes; I would totally be guilty of having a, "rare hybrid" toad in my home as well.

Don't worry. Life's too short for "best housekeeping."
