There was a definite wiggle in the patch of thyme – the cause turned out to be this small toad who was hanging around the back porch. He’s a very welcome addition to the local bug patrol, but I do hope he doesn’t run into the speckled king snake who’s lived under there in the past!
I saw several dragonflies around this evening – this one was more cooperative than the blue-bodied ones that kept moving too fast for a photo.
Since there was a nice bone left from the ham we had when the kids were here last week, I made a big pot of black bean soup (shown with rice, chopped onion, cilantro and sour cream) more or less following the recipe from Daisy Cooks! I may have made just a wee bit too much 😉 so will be putting several containers into the freezer for future meals.
