Wildscape presentation (plus a toad)

This past Tuesday evening, I was honored to give my "Window on a Texas Wildscape" presentation to members of the Lindheimer chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas. As always, James and I met a lot of nice folks.

PLUS A TOAD...Right after we pulled up into a parking slot, I spotted this little juvenile Gulf Coast toad. It was just sitting there at the edge of the curb, like it was contemplating life or what to do next. I talked to it a minute, then I picked it up. I didn't want to leave it in the middle of all that concrete and asphalt. So I released it behind a chain-link fence into a grassy field. Happy life, friend! Do you deep thinking in a safer place.
