Who says toads don't like water



Eenie


Meenie


Minie


Moe



Eenie, meenie, minie, moe
catch a toadie by the toe.
If it screams let it go,
eenie, meeney, mnie, moe.


They say toads aren't fond of water however I disagree. Perhaps it's the unbearable heat and dry soil that is drawing them to the Pond. The frog population is down so I am quite content with toads.  :)

Breaching - Haiku


When I took this photo I didn't see the whale flutes.
It was after an evening of pondering that I noticed the likeness.

Whirlwind of spring


from abundant sunshine
roots awake in the soils warmth
while gentle rains provide nourishment
aiding in Springs magic,
leaves birthed into the whirlwind of life.

I should have understood the sign...


I should have understood the sign. An amaryllis potted in late November is blooming NOW. It is mid April and the white shite still falls. Shovels had to be hauled from the shed while patio furniture was stowed in it for the third time this month.

Scilla and crocuses are buried just as they began to bloom. They will return, at least the scilla will, as should the twolips and daffies that had pushed their way to life. But the weather like most things is something we can't control so for now we go with the flow even if it's the non-flow of ice floating on The Pond.
