Garden Critters


We thought we would share with you some of the critters we have in our garden. Oh sure, we have all sorts, but these are our least favorites and our most favorites.

OK, our least favorites are these guys....they are EVERYWHERE! We don't know what they are called, but there are hundreds of them. No, they don't do anything bad to us and they are only outside, but they think they own all green spaces and I don't think I've been anywhere in the garden where I haven't seen one! Are you familiar with these guys? OK, their color is pretty, but there are just too dang many of 'em!!


Now here is something we like: frogs and toads!! We love all sorts of frogs and toads, but our favorites are the little tiny ones that we almost don't see hopping around in various places in the garden. Aren't they just sooo cute? The little frog wasn't too shy, but the little toad was very anxious about getting off of our Mom's hand! I think I might be scared too if I was so small and something so big was holding on to me!!

Are the bugs a beetle of some sort? Hundreds would kinda give our human a creepy crawling feeling all over her. MOL.

The frog and toad are cute! We've never seen them in real life. You have very interesting critters in your garden!

You two have a great garden! Mama wouldn't like those red bugs, but it sounds like they're harmless. Yes, the frog and toad are very cute!

p.s. Thanks for the sunning advice. I will be very careful not to let my furs turn purple. :)
