I try to encourage as many kinds of critters to live in the garden as I can.  Here are some recent and current inhabitants and visitors:

Fence Lizard laying eggs



Checkered Garter Snake trying to eat a Leopard Frog



Leopard Frog on Clary Sage



Native pollinators on Sagittaria blooms



Blotched Water Snake



Checkered Garter Snake



Cricket Frog

Thanks for sharing.  I get an occasional garter snake but sadly no frogs or toads or even lizards.  Hoping to get a pond in next year and thinking that may bring some frogs and not just encourage the raccoons.

We got frogs in it almost immediately after I put in the little garden pond, though we have a large population of amphibians here anyway, which is weird since we have no "live" water on our place.
