What Happens When You Add Habitat

You get scenes like this:

Yum. I mean, just yum.
Snakes and toads are both beneficial, so in this case, the toad getting eaten is a bit of a loss... but thanks to the plentiful breeding grounds, rocks, sticks and abundant foliage, there really isn't a shortage of toads in my yard.

Leave wild spaces, unkempt corners and damp areas. Then you'll get plenty of species - and free entertainment. Incidentally, the snake in the picture is one of these.

I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog. I'm a FL. Master Naturalist and a Master Gardener with a totally wild backyard habitat including the pool to pond. I get a notice from the city at least once a year, but they seem to be getting used to my ordered chaos! Thanks for all your hard work on this!

Thank you. I was a Master Gardener until the middle of last year. Too much time away from my own garden! Keep on doing what you're doing... the cities need to appreciate those who are making a place for the species they've displaced through development.
