Creatures Add to a Garden

" is said that a toad is worth twenty dollars a year, and I suppose a frog helps, too.  In my garden there are more frogs than toads, as we have a pool, and their evening chorus is such a din I have been expecting the neighbors to complain, but all I have heard them say is they like it."
Elizabeth Lawrence

Indeed, creatures do add to a garden, and this little fellow was just as happy as can be perched lazily atop the leaf of a crinum.  The observant eyes of Sukey Pratt and Ellen Archer, two of our wonderful garden Keepers, caught this tree frog hanging out in the humid morning air.

Yours in Dirt,
