    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love it! One summer out taking a walk I came upon a small toad, too. It inspired me to write this--

    At road's edge brown toad,
    no bigger than a thumbnail,
    takes a giant leap
    Don't worry spider.
    I keep house
    casually.

    How did she find that tiny little frog? She is a pretty girl with a great smile. Hope the frog makes it to full growth.

    Used to find these all over the place when I was at Grandma's in the summer. Always had one in hand and then next day had to go find more, they kept traveling at night.
    PS, you can't grow frog-legs on a toad. Just won't happen.

    this is so cute! my granddaughter, who is 7--and very animal-centric--was in church with her folks 2 weeks ago. apparently there was a massive hatch of toads somewhere in the church, because the sanctuary was loaded with hundreds of them. little granddaughter proclaimed that she had to do a rescue, and the pastor agreed with her--she spent the entire service collecting the babies in a big cup from the snack station, and taking them outside to release. by the time the service was over, she'd taken a couple of hundred of them out to the long grass out back. the next week, she gathered another hundred, and this sunday was an "animal blessing" service--and sure enough, she found one more toad in the hall. it was blessed, along with pets and some small farm animals, and this blessed toad was sent out in the grass, too. i love toads. even more, i love this child's advocate heart.

    Here in Calif. those are know as tree frogs, they come out at night and are attracted to light. They climb the window screens and sometimes they lay in the tracks. We have to be careful when we close the windows or they will get squished on the tracks. They do live in our oak trees, they are really tiny, the babies are eraser size.

    I think that's a long lost cousin! Thanks for the rescue.

    We used to have hundreds of them in and near the school field where I grew up in NY... at one time, called 'frog hollow'.

    Enjoy our beautiful earth; our wondrous nature.

    When I was a kid, there was an abandoned gravel pit down the road, my sister and I used to find dozens and dozens of them there...we called them penny toads..I don't know if that's a name we made up, or a regional name for them or what? Glad to see a kid in this day and age in the dirt being a kid! She will be all the better for it.

    Reminds me of funny (not so then) story. My 6 year old youngest DD let out a wail one evening. I went to her room and she was holding an empty shoe box. I asked what is wrong with you? She said I caught frogs last night and put them in this box in my closet and now they are gone!
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    My husband was mowing yesterday and stirred up several of those little frogs--one was noticed by a robin who flew off with it.

    We find them around the lake all the time at this time of the year. I won't say what we do with them though...
