We appreciate all of the frogs and toads, skinks and lizards who live in our garden, because their favorite food is insects!
We have lots of little amphibians and reptiles about, also finding a turtle or snake in the garden from time to time. It isn’t unusual to find a little toad or lizard nestled into a pot while I”m watering.
We are happy to share the garden with them.
And so I’ve formed some little “toad houses” to sit under our hypertufa troughs.
This little U shaped plant stand not only holds the pot up securely so it will drain well in the rain, but also makes a safe and cool little place for a tiny creature to take shelter on a hot sunny day.
We haven’t found one inhabited yet, but know we will one day soon!
