This guy has been on this leaf for two days..
I'm glad~ the pic's today of him are much
better than yesterday...
I think he is too hot to move..


A Mushroom that popped up after the rain


close up of mushroom...


This guy..(black snake) was on my porch..
I think I spooked him as bad as he spooked me
he was headed for the woods before I could get
my camera...he's fast..so I could only get
the tail end of him..

Yikes! That black snake would spook me out of my garden for life. My big fear is that if I encountered one, as much as I love gardening, that would be it for me. I'm a whimp!

Hi Joey...
The black snakes aren't so bad...it's the copperheads and the rattlesnakes..that I hate seeing...last year was a bad year for those...but knock on wood...so far this year I've only seen garder snakes and black snakes..we did have a HUGE black snake in the bathroom earlier this summer..it came in my window~hubby has fixed my screen since...that was a scare!! I'll have to post the pics of it one day. Thanks for stopping by and your comments!!

Not that is one black snake. Snakes are not my favorite even though I keep hearing how good they are for the garden, I would just as soon they stay in someone else's garden :). And a snake in the bathroom?????? I wouldn't need to use the bathroom after that :).
