Toads, rainbows and hoopoes

This younger toad was found on a different morning.

Rainbow coloured granny blankets dry in the Summer sun. They have just been repaired and I would like them to be family heirlooms. The colours tell a story. The one with smaller squares was made when I was pregnant 34 years ago. The second came from my father's house in Spain. After he died about 15 years ago I couldn't bear to dismissively dispose of the colourful cover. It's not well made but it evokes memories! A different rainbow suggest that the thunder in the stormy skies have ceased.

And the hoopoe has been heard near our neighbour's barn.
