Waiting for Spring?


You know what they say, "You have a to kiss a lot of toads before......"  Well I'm sorry but everytime I see this guy perched on his lily pad at the Birmgham Botanical Gardens, I smile and think of that quote.  And by the way, I took a very nice stroll through the gardens on Wednesday, and I do believe this guy will be feeling frisky very soon! ;)

All the colors. Beautiful. And I'm rather fond of toads.

I too like toads, but haven't kissed any. Would a fake toad turn into a mannequin prince?

Hiker,
I'm not surprised!

Bibi,
HAR, I don't know. Shall I go back and give this guy a smooch and find out? :)

PS...looks like we're going to have a white spring...another 8 or so inches since last night and still going strong!!!

He may be frisky but he still won't be a prince.

Virginia said...

Bob,
You know that's right!

Kathy,
Non, but I"ve kissed many others, ha!

Bird,
Darlin, I'm so sorry to hear that. Come on down here and visit and warm up!

This is so lovely, Virginia. I prefer frogs to toads, especially ones who turn into princes...

Yep, me too! I suppose if kissing a toad would make spring appear this afternoon, I'd do it -:)
