Little Surprises

I often find that it's the little, unexpected surprises that make my day. This morning, I had two while watering the yard (yes, the weather is heating up already).

A perfectly camouflaged toad...
...and the first flawless and fragrant gardenia blossom.
May your day be filled with sweet little surprises today!


  1. What a cute little toad! I love the unexpected!

  2. Thanks Silke for the comments you left on my blog...Oh I love your surprises this morning.
    Toads are so intriging...and the fresh blossom is so pure...great shots!
    Have a wonderful day.

  3. My favorite flowers are those that are white, interesting as my favorite color is the opposite. Thanks for the comment regarding my pictures I truly enjoy yours as well.

    And please be careful where you step, that toad is very hard to see.


  4. Surprises are wonderful. Sweet toad - have you ever taken a look at their eyes? They are so beautiful. And they are far more intelligent than frogs.
    Lovely gardenia and wonderful photos.
    Have a lovely day!

  5. Excellent captures my friend! Blessings and light from Amy.

  6. So true that the unexpected surprises that often make our day. Nature never fails to surprise & inspire. What wonderful pictures, thank you for sharing them xx

  7. You must have a very green thumb! I loved reading through your blog... thanks for your kind comments.
