My friend Otter and I were making our way to a waterfall today, when Otter nearly stepped on a toad that blended perfectly with the rock. Otter said sorry and we watched the stout fellow hop to another rock in the stream. Thinking of this after returning to my home garden, I pulled out the “Frog and Toad” books I’d read as a wee hatchling. I’d completely forgotten the story of Toad’s empty mailbox and a helpful snail!
