photo: green toad

He looked just like the toad from last week
, only green. I wish you could see him in all the larger-than-life detail of the original photograph, but it’s too big for a dial-up download… on the other hand, who am I to say what you’d be willing to download? Here
is the full-size image, at about 350K.

In the bigger image you can see how delicate his toes are, and if you look at it long enough, a sense of patience, almost kindness in his eyes (unless you’re a fly, that is).


The forget-me-nots are blooming now, and black raspberries that volunteered in the southwest corner of our yard are bearing fruit, and boy
are they good, sprinkled liberally over ice cream on a hot summer’s day.
