love nesting

I've been away for a few days doing an assignment for school on the design and production of high-end washing machines.  Sheesh, as if I don't have enough washwomanery in my life!

But it's all done, crisp and clean, so I dropped over here to the blog and... look at all the updates on my bloglist!  Oh, I must get to reading something other than moldy door seals!

Meego and I went to the nursery over the weekend so he could do a little landscaping refurb on the toad vivarium.  He wanted some more ground cover for them other than the moist soil they usually do their thing on.  And "their thing" is pretty much toad sex.

Have I mentioned that we don't know the sex of any of the toads?  We've sort of deduced that they're all guys, though.  At first, we just watched to see who took which position in doing "their thing", and they all ended up interchanging.  Okay, nothing wrong with that.  It's still possible that they're all girls, or some mixture.

But I digress, this is about the landscaping.  Meego ended up getting this little Blue Star Creeper plant.  I'd like to put some in our neglected backyard, but we'll test it on the small scale for now.

Here it is, freshly rooted in the upper left corner:



The toad threesome hung out in a tote during the extensive yardwork








The tote proved to be a total mood breaker.

But once they were back in their natural environs, they seem to really like the new plant.  Broke it in in no time!

So, let's play "I Spy".  Can you find him/her?


Who can resist these bedroom eyes?

  1. Ooooh... they're going to love doing their thing in and amongst and around their new landscaping. Funny that the tote acted as a cold shower. That may be good information!

    1. Yes, at least they aren't exhibitionists. I don't know if I'd have that in my house.

  2. Well, that was interesting. I don't think I have ever read a post about from sex and who is doing who.

    1. Find it here!.... or in the tabloids at the grocery check-out.

  3. I'm guessing most humans don't really care who they do either, but most of us are not prepared to admit it. Or perhaps we just need some more shrubbery to enhance the mood!

  4. I may have a THING. Between making inappropriate comments about the handsome bucks behind your house to finding those toady bedroom eyes awfully compelling...uhhh, yeah. Am mildly concerned...

    1. Have I told you about the gophers?

  5. That toad habitat is quite beautiful. Do the toads know how lucky they are to have landed in Meego's care? Probably not if they're all preoccupied with their sex lives!

    1. If I were a toad, I'd want to live there... and do toad things.

  6. So that's what those Knights Who Say "NI!' were on about with the shrubberies. :)

  7. Toad nookie? I can see where the tote would be a real mood killer. Maybe a little romantic lighting? A little Barry White?

  8. You've sparked a funny conversation! Nothing like sex to take us off topic. Or, maybe we 'are' on topic since you 'did' title it Love Nesting. I hope they're happy and active in their renovated vivarium.
