This is one of my newly created toad abode houses for the garden, this one has a frog perched atop a beautiful leaf, created from the glory bower (clerodendrum splendens) plant, adorning its roof. Toad abode houses are both functional and decorative. They will add color, whimsy and visual texture to your garden in addition to providing a home to frogs and toads.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that a single adult toad can eat 10,000 insect pests over the course of an average summer. You can welcome them to your yard not with a kiss, but with a castle: a so-called toad abode. Toads are most active at night, so during the day they need a fairly dark, cool place to hide from the sun and predators. Encourage these garden friendly creatures to have a nice long stay in your garden by providing these adorable toad houses. Place many toad houses in the moist shady areas of your garden.
8" wide X 3 1/2" tall and glazed in a lovely multi-toned green and brown color. This leaf topped toad abode is very natural looking and would blend right into the garden.
Please bring me inside during freezing temperatures.
