The Tale of Mums & the Toad

A Tale from the Singing Woods

Once upon a time, there was a wonderful husband, named Prince Rich.
He was so kind,  he brought his most LOVELY wife,  Princess Deena
some potted mums for the front porch.

That evening as Princess Deena was watering the mums, 
she heard a noise.  Not sure what it was, she continued to water
& the noise was heard by the lovely princess two more times.
Then the noise stopped.

The next day, as the princess was passing the front door
she saw something in her pot of mums, and opened the door
to go outside.  This is what she saw. The toad had come
home with the mums & made the strange noises when he
got wet. 

The moral of the story is you don't have to kiss a toad
to have a Prince of a husband.

Love to my dear hubby
Fondly, Deena
PS, I love the TOAD too!!

How fun! What a gift to have had Mr. Toad pick you and your family to come home with. He must have known that you would be good to him.. even if you watered him on accident!
