Lurking in the leaves….

Whilst putting together the garden furniture for our new holiday cottage in the back garden, I noticed a rustling in the dead leaves on the floor.  The two horse chestnut trees in the garden are shedding leaves which are a lovely rusty brown colour.  The wind swirls them around so they end up in a heap by the back door. Part of the heap was moving, and there was definitely no wind!

Looking closer, I discovered a small toad nestling amongst the leaves.  He was so well disguised that it took me a moment to find him!

See for yourself…..
