First Snake EVER!
As you can tell from the title to this post, I found my first snake ever IN the garden. I've seen snakes run across the street around our old house, occasionally, as we were across from an oil field, but hadn't seen anything here. Was taking our "tour" with DH tonight, and as we squeezed past the tomato jungle (seriously! 4 ft already!) he said "watch out" and evidently I'd just stepped over a worm snake in my flip flops and shorts. I grabbed up Kitty (she's blind in one eye and I don't trust her to see a snake in time) and quietly freaked out.
Dawn, I told Mike that you always mention snakes, and wearing long pants and closed toe shoes in the garden and not going into the garden at certain times (perhaps 8:30pm on a sunny warm night is one?!!!?) but I'd thought I was safe in suburbia. Whoa!
