Yes, and let me tell you about the two that live under the manhole next to the cutoff valve for the water.
It's almost midnight. Your wife has been in bed for hours. Toads! Have you no sense of decency!?
It's not just the toads. Have I told you about the hummingbird? And the bees that have come with the flowers that followed that rain we had a couple weeks ago? And...
Dear god, man.

I wonder how it decides to come out at night, that toad that we found in the street several months ago and invited to come stay with us.
There's a shallow pan of water next to a low stack of logs between the Hummingbird Bush and Silver Germander, and we've seen the toad soaking there on occasion in the evening. But usually when I go out to look, the toad's not there. And it's not there tonite, although the pan is full.
It was hot today, and it still is, even though the sun's been down for hours. If I were that toad tonite and I had to choose between the logs or the water, I'd choose the water. But I don't need to state the obvious.Maybe I should go check again.
