Signs of Spring: First Toad in the Swimming Pool!

 The brilliant red Cardinal is fighting it out with the mirrored gazing ball, 
claiming the back yard as his nesting territory, 
the latest daffodils are finally out, 
the hellebore continues to bloom beautifully 
and the first little toadie was madly swimming in the pool this morning.
Signs of Spring!!

The toad guardian statue in the garden was not amused.
I was amused.
It's a matter of days before the happy puppies
discover that there are kicking toads
in the pool.
And leap in after them.
It should only take one cold dunk to cure them of it.

I have the puppy rescue net ready.
Be still my heart.

Meanwhile, the puppies are once again
in their glory, digging in the newly muddied garden.

A face only a mother could love.
Bath time for everyone!
