Lawn work--

Started the day by getting up at 9:00 to mow the front lawn, go me. I used to love mowing the lawn, but Whines has an electric lawn mower...MUCH more ecologically sound, but hard to use and not as much fun. *Shrug*

Moved a lot of the flower pots around that had very high grass growing around them. As I shuffled some and started mowing, a huge rat snake, maybe two feet long and almost two inches wide, slithered out and climbed into the crepe myrtle,

which was kind of a surprise, I didn't know they could climb trees. Live and learn. Anyway, the cute little thing barely put up with me taking photographs, so I dragged Whines outside -- mostly an excuse to see him in his boxers -- and when he was safely inside again, got the neighbor's kids over to see the critter. Once he was sufficiently viewed, I went back to lawn work.

Another toad in the water bucket we keep near the front door. Big toads. Better there than burrowing in my miracle berry...

Finished mowing the lawn--a little later on, got a bottle of fish emulsion fertilizer and poured it liberally around on my herbs and stuff. Oh, the stink. The dogs like stink. Everything smells of horrible fish muck now, including myself, that smell does NOT come out.

Why does a snake lover like me is stuck in a country where there are hardly any snakes in the wild. ;_;

Nice pictures man, kudos for leaving the critter in peace.

From the photos, it looks a bit more like a bull snake (though they eat rats).
