There's fear and loathing and then there's just fear....
i finally decided to carry myself out to the yard with the camera to document any progress i might make against the weeds this weekend...doady doa here i go just wandering around...see the daisies budding, can't wait for them, oooh the clematis is really pretty, haven't seen that color in the neighborhood, good choice! wish i knew her name, maybe i can find the tag somewhere, WHAT'S THAT???SNAKE!!!!oh my gosh!dang he's long!holy moly he's looking right at me!!YUCK!!!I probably shouldn't be letting him slither underneath the house...wonder if there are any holes in the ductwork...could he crawl up to the registers and get in the house????better run in the house and close them all...I know regular old black snakes are good because they take care of the rodents but dang couldn't he hang out near the mole/vole runs instead of right there by the astilbes where i need to weed??Then i ask myself is there a similarity between snakes and banks? Snakes keep the rodent population down for me but scare me to death, one good for one bad...Banks practically bend over backwards to loan someone money when they don't desperately need it but slam the vault doors on someone who's had a some trouble and just need a little boost,one good for one bad????Snakes scare the living daylights out of me but they do serve a good purpose. Banks have scared me from ever borrowing money again and i'm beginning to loathe their good pupose...tonya 05/22/2010

Tonya I don't suppose you want to hear this but I have a pet snake in the house. OK it's in a vivarium but I have to admit I love snakes. I would be thrilled to see a grass snake in my garden and would probably spend too much time standing watching it in action. However, for your sake, I hope your one doesn't get into your house and confines himself to the garden.
If I saw that guy in my yard, I'da hadda cow. Makes me shiver just looking at the pictures. Last summer I almost stepped on one slithering across the path in my favorite garden center. Of course I gasped... LOUDLY... instant celebrity -- "that's the lady who saw the SNAKE."
As for banks, I chose credit unions. Snakes, I'm in eileen's corner and rather enjoy them, but like them outside. Thank you for a giggle with your lively description. I've done a little scream myself when startled by their presence. Enjoyed the photos also.
When I see snakes I run...towards them with a camera! I like snakes xD
