Chasing a toad

While doing yardwork this afternoon, I apparently annoyed a toad, so then I chased him for a little while.

Disclaimer: please bear with the commercial above, how can I resist possibly making some change off a toad movie...

I'm attempting to eradicate the crabgrass and grow new "turf." We'll see. I made a makeshift aerator to assist in this task:

It's made out of a messed up garden tool, a board, drilled in bolts and stuff.

Sorry to realize just now I forgot to move this little green guy before aerating. Maybe he escaped?

Meanwhile, flowers are doing bloomingly:

Strawberry flowers

I love the makeshift aerator! Probably a lot easier to use in our clay-heavy soil than those clumsy aerator sandals I had.

Aww toad! CUTE. We have about a million in our yard during the summer (it actually gets a little annoying when you're trying to mow the lawn).

Loved the pictures of the flowers (and the cute little strawberry plants)

I love your garden tool did it work? I always wondered if soccer or golf shoes would do the same thing.

What a fine looking fellow - the toad, I mean.... I hope you had luck with your aerator and getting rid of the crab grass. Be back later. ATB!

The aerator is fantastic! I should think about making one for our clay soil as well!

I rather liked the "ad" ahead of the toad (who is a cutie, by the way) :-)
