Those first few photos should be in some sort of natural clothing catalog! Looks like such a beautiful & relaxing day. Love the handful of frogs. :)

That handful of toads made me laugh! :)
We don't get that around here. Makes me miss Oklahoma.

What a glorious day.
If we ever get another warm day again, I'll be celebrating, too!

Just beautiful, Shona.
