A Toad! A Toad!
Wow! : ) Just checked on the bunch of houseplants, summering outside. Lifted a pot, and there it was!
It can be a hot area as it's paved, and part is quite sunny, for about three hours. To soften the heat to warmth, I left two trays of extra soil, one at the hot edge, and one tucked away. The saucers are out from under the pots, to prevent 'wet feet', and gather water. It was under the ribbon plant's pot, back by the mini jungle, so I set some support under that pot, for a toad cave.
Around the corner of the house is a more toad friendly area. I think I'll set a shallow pot out there, near where I saw one 5 years ago.
Oh, a little clatter, as hail came in the window [pea sized], what a day ! florey
