How did I get here?

We did have a bit (less than 0.10") of rain yesterday afternoon. It made the temperatures drop so we could sleep with the windows open, and made the air smell fresh and delicious. It also makes the veggies grow; the difference between water from the (excellent) aquifer and the sky.

Guess what I found in one of the garden trugs this morning? It's a small spade foot toad. He now happily resides among the herbs.

When we came to live here, I had no idea of the diversity of life in the desert. Flora and Fauna.

next time try petting him under his chin. apparently that stimulates their defensive mode, but, I tried it on one, and he just seemed to like it! he was a very cute toad.
