The toadPosted: September 1, 2010 Filed under: Adventures in Life, canning & freezing, Earth, Harvest, home, nature, Photography, Summer, water | Tags: toads, totems 17 Comments
I’m busy canning tomatoes, pickling peppers, and all sorts of other harvest-related activities. So I thought I’d let this little guy who recently showed up on our new patio hold some space here for me until I can get back to regular blogging.
In the world of animal totems, toads are said to represent enchantment, luck, longevity, and blessings. That seems a lot for this little guy, but he did enchant me with his beautiful color and I feel lucky as well as blessed to have seen him.
I guess that isn’t too much for a little guy after all.
It is also said that if a frog or toad shows up in your life, change or a metamorphosis is about to take place and it may be time to take a leap onto a new life path. Today I am taking a leap and starting out on a new/old path that may well bring change to my life.
But you’ll have to wait to hear about it as I want some time to learn before I start to write.
I have seen a lot of toads throughout the summer, in the garden and around the new patio. More than usual. It seems they might have been trying to tell me something. All I had to do was pay attention.
