  1. Love these photos Beth. That toad looks like it is stuffed full and ready for hibernation. ha... It won't be long.

    1. Thanks, Lisa. Yes, I feel a bit bad about the toad. He/she was hanging out under a potted plant that I had set in a hole for the winter and just got around to lifting it for planting in a different place. I guess he/she still has a bit of time to find a new seasonal hiding place. ;-)

    1. Thanks, Margaret. I'm always amazed when I look closely to see how many species of creatures make themselves at home in the garden. It's so encouraging!

    1. Always looking at ways to make their habitat more special! The toad is impressive, isn't he/she?

  5. Great set of shots, Beth. I especially like the *almost* entwined monarch cats.

    1. Thank you, Tina. I was holding the leaves I found them on. They started wrapping around as I was taking the photo--wriggly little buddies. :)

  6. Your critters are out in force! A key sign of a successful garden. Love the photos. Jealous of your caterpillars - I've seen plenty of Monarchs this year, but very few cats.

    1. It seemed to be a good year for monarchs--here at least, Jason. I haven't found caterpillars lately, since it's the end of the season. But for a while, I couldn't find any milkweed stalks that didn't have either eggs or caterpillars on them. Now the adult butterflies are migrating through in full force!

  7. There is a lot of life moving around in your garden. We've had more butterflies this year, but they move too fast for my camera. Lots of bees and bugs, too.
