Mr. Toads Wild Side

Well, it hasn't been all that long since we met the Diamondback snoozing in my backyard. I guess I'll be getting acquainted with all kinds of colorful characters who decide to mosey on in to my back yard and crash my party. The Rattler only stopped by twice so far (that we know of), and this is Mr. Toads second visit as well. I suppose if the Rattler ever catches wind that Mr. Toads been hanging out on my back porch, than the Rattler just might come sniffing around more often in hopes of dining on Frogs Legs. Unlike the Colorado River Toad, this Great Plains toad is quite harmless.

Sure Fire Sign

One sure fire sign that your addicted to participating in Illustration Friday's weekly challenge...... is when you miss a week while your on vacation, and have visions of Grapefruit, Limes, and Oranges frolicking through your imagination.

New Neighbor was out doing some gardening this morning and I caught my new "neighbor" curled up and napping under a little Yucca. Good thing my friend Bill spotted him before things could have gotten ugly. Come to find out my new neighbor is a "Western Diamondback". One of the deadliest reptiles in this country. I'm too much of a nature lover to have allowed any harm to come to him. Although my other neighbors would not have even flinched before lopping his head off. This is the second time he's been busted napping in my yard. So now, rule number ONE, when you come over for a visit......NO LEAVING THE PATIO!
Click on my new neighbor for a better view, and as always, thanks for visiting!
