I love this thread in that I got to re-enjoy all the little peek-a-boo surprises in my garden all over again. Some of these yard goodies have been in my yard for a long time. You take them for granted. Taking these photos to share with me brought smile to my face as I hope they do you as well.

Welcome to our garden!

So neat!! I love all the peek-a-boo surprises in my yard....especially the tiny little live frogs that come into my rain gauge....and the ones that surprise me on the open window of my car as I am driving down the road. So special. :)

Great little surprises.
I think the laughing rabbit is my favorite.
And of course, the real frog/toad!
