Toads in the Garden

DSC_0026Toads are beneficial creatures in the garden- consuming thousands of insects in a season during the cool nights. All they need is a cool damp place to rest during the hot sunny parts of the day. I have broken terra-cotta pots and ceramic sculptures scattered throughout the garden to provide homes but this guy was living in a natural space created by logs used as pedestals for potted plants. Set up shady spots to take advantage of this natural and pesticide free pest control.
