In the Garden

Someone has moved in to protect the garden.

I have to admit, if I were a bug I would totally avoid this.

Taking a Snake Break

•September 5, 2014 • Leave a Comment

The other morning when Willy the dog an I went for our walk we saw this guy laying in the road. Willy of course was all “let’s go see it” I wasn’t sure if it was alive or smushed. We walked up with caution, I could not see any obvious smushing, but the snake was not moving at all.

We went to find a stick to prod it a little to see if it would move. The first ‘stick’ I found was actually a root and it was still attached to a bush. There is never a stick when you need one. So I broke a little branch off the bush, by this time Willy was so done with the snake he wanted to go off walking. He was easily convinced to stay, due to the face he was on his leash. :) I took the small branch and poked at the tail of the snake, it didn’t move a bit, then a black tongue came out…. OK snake alive.

I did’t want the snake to end up getting smushed so off Willy and I went to find a real stick, this took a little longer than I thought but we finally found a long stick. By the time we returned to the snake it was long gone. I couldn’t see a trace of it anywhere. Guess the snake was waiting for us to leave before it moved on.

I have coaxed snakes out of the road before but never had Willy with me. I wonder if the snake was just warming up or was it thinking Willy was a coyote and it didn’t want to get attacked. Guess I will never know.

Drinks for Two

These two coyotes stopped in this morning to get a drink from the watering hole.

They must have been thirsty because they drank for quite a while.

Every so often I post close up photo of something I have seen lately. I put that photo at the top of my post, I post the full photo of the last close up at the bottom of the post. Here is this weeks photo… Guess what this is!

The answer to the last post is…

You know you sometimes if you look at things to closely it is really hard to figure out what they are, but then again if you only look at things from a distance, you can miss the important and interesting details. It is also often easy to get swayed by what someone else thinks/guesses.
