This morning I woke up early to the sound of rain, but now the sun has come out.
You can already see a little slug damage on some of the hostas. They especially like the light green one.
The slugs aren’t very big yet, and I couldn’t find any snails at all.
A toad is supposed to be on mosquito duty, but it is sunning itself. It is entirely motionless except for the nostrils which keep expanding. I think it sees me. When I turn my back for a moment, the toad avails itself of the opportunity to disappear, and hops into the daylilies.
There is a snake around here someplace, but I don’t see it today. It was last seen disappearing under this foliage.
