My neighbors must thinking I am off my rocker crazy. I have this problem I love toads & frogs. Not a problem right? Well I don't think so except for when it comes to mowing the lawn. We have a BIG yard almost 6 acres so we have a riding mower and I do the majority of the mowing because my husband isn't home much. If you read any of my blogs I have mentioned before that he is a truck driver so this keeps him away from home alot.
Anyway I enjoy riding the mower it is calming for me to ride around the yard cutting the grass looking at all the wildlife I see. But here's the problem along with having all this property comes lots of toads and frogs. Not a problem for me I think they are just so cute and squishy so while I am mowing away I am also on the look out for them making sure I don't accidentally mow one down. So whenever I see one I stop the mower and try to catch it to move it to a more secure mower free location. The thing is and this is what I mean when I say my neighbors must think I am crazy. Have you ever tried to catch a frog or toad? Well it is sometimes easier said than done.
Sometimes they hop so fast that I am running around in circles trying to get the little buggers. I know if I was in my house or yard watching this chick get off her mower and walk around in circles for a few mins every few feet or so. I would think to myself what the hell is this lady doing has she lost her mind or something? So I just would like to clear the air to all my neighbors I am not I repeat not crazy I am preserving the wildlife here in my yard.All of the toads and frogs in our neighborhood know they are safe here so come one come all to our yard and live a mower free existences.
P.S. I can not vouch for my dog not eating you though. SORRY
