If you build it.............

...they will come.

I am pleased to report that Mr Toad has moved into his new compact and bijou residence (AKA the dustbin lid pond) which is now teeming with wildlife - just like the lady on Gardeners World said it would be, and adding so much interest to my tiny garden.


I hope he gets himself a lady friend - I'd love to have frogspawn next spring. xxxx

OOOh Diane you will have to arrange a blind date for him! Or maybe kiss him and see if he turns into a prince!

How cool is that. I'm sure it won't be long before he's tempting all those lady frogs back to his new 'pad'.

Hope you're having a fab weekend.

How lovely. Perhaps I have got room for a pond if all ita takes is a dustbin lid.

Amazing!

I bet he thinks he's in toad heaven finding a pond in your garden he can have all to himself. He may eventually invite a lady friend round then you may have to build an extension:)

Lovely! We haven't seen our toads (or are the frogs??) this year yet - so I don't know if they managed to survive the harsh winter) - fingers crossed that they're just being evasive.

He looks so 'at home'. I found a toad when i was gardening today. He looked so cross that I had disturbed him!!

Its great that it not only works (attracting wildlife) but looks so good too! A real toad hall.

Wonderful - I thought it was a great idea when you last posted about it and now you've reminded me we are definitely going to give it a go, just need to find a bin lid from somewhere. Perhaps we can get our newts back!
