    love the evening primrose and the raindrops really enhance the photo
    I had a surprise this afternoon, my neighbour's cat was making strange noises and that usually means he is arguing with one of my cats, I went out to separate them but could only see him I walked around the little flower bed as I thought my cat was probably hiding under the rosemary but no cat there then I saw this on the path

    Thanks Mary, I am going to see if it is open now and get another photo, it was dark when I took that one and wet of course.

    Love the photo of the frog, at least it looks more frog than toad, they are lumpier aren't they? Have you ever seen them or heard them when they are frightened? They put their front feet/hands/paws!!! over their eyes and squeal, a very high pitched noise. The first time I heard this noise I was in bed and had to see which animal was in distress. I found my neighbour's cat pawing at a frog and it sat there in that position, sort of, if I can't see you, you can't see me. But the noise was so loud I heard it from my bedroom, this was about 1am. Needless to say, I chased the cat and rescued the frog, although to some degree it did work because the cat didn't seem to know what of make of this squealing creature but it was awful because the little frog must have been terrified.

    Well done Susie on rescuing the frog. I have never heard them making that sound.
    It must be loud, for you to hear it indoors.
    We have a frog that lives in our barrel pond, and when we clean it in
    Autumn, I have to catch it while hubby does the cleaning

    I've never heard them scream either but this one is definitely a toad

    Yes, I can see what you mean Mary, he does have that more scaly look than a frog. If you Google squealing frogs you can actually see a video of a puppy finding a frog and the frog squealing. I was reading that they aren't sure if it is fear, or to frighten off the predator or if a bird is attacking it, to attract a cat to get the bird. I reckon it is probably fear and maybe trying to frighten the predator away. Then again, when they squeal with their little feet over their eyes that has to be fear surely. It is sad to see and nice to be able to rescue the frog.

    The man in his little van has been down poisoning the weeds on the pavement today. I sent hubby up the vale with a bottle of water to pour over the Evening Primrose flowers in the hope of saving them. He's thinks I'm mad but I don't care. I'll have to make sure the dogs don't go sniffing round the pavements now.

    Oh dear. Yes be very careful of letting the dogs sniff round.
    I should imagine it's strong poison, although I think that they
    will have domestic and wild life in mind when spraying.
    If it's that poisonous,they should have notices out stating warning people!!!!
