A couple of evenings ago, this little chap hopped out from under our sofa. He must have found his way in the house during the day. He didn’t seem worried about us picking him up. We put him outside.
This morning I couldn’t sleep. I came down to the kitchen to make a cup of tea, while the rest of the house slept on. I love those times. Anyway, as I turned on the light, in the middle of the floor was a another one. Another toad. I have a feeling that the toads are taking a short cut through our house.
Judging by the fluff on the first toad’s nose, I need to vacuum under my sofa! At least he doesn’t have fairy glitter on his nose.
Another extra, I discovered today, is this pumpkin. It was in the sweetcorn patch and I did not plant it. There is one growing in the greenhouse, which is turning a beautiful orange. I didn’t plant that one either. The one in the sweetcorn patch is yet to turn orange, but look what it can do….
It feels like the garden is building up to something magical. Or maybe I should expect Cinderella at any moment. I’ll just have to wait and see!
