Wild

It is not only plants that are waking as the days lengthen and the air warms.  This newt was roused from his slumbers in Max’s garden today, perhaps a tad prematurely.  Fear not, soon he was safely relocated to a new home to wake gently. Later a big fat toad was found dozing in the wood pile and swiftly joined his fellow in Amphibian Towers.  Others, such as chunky slugs and root chomping weevils, were met with a less compassionate welcome.

  1. We’ve got taddies swimming around in the bottom of the pond but I haven’t seen a newt for some time so thank-you for that picture.

  2. Just waiting for my little newts to appear amongst the flowerpots, not that they can eat all the slugs but I’m sure they help out a bit.
