You will never guess what I saw!Woman in the Middle | October 7, 2013
Sometimes we feel like we live on heaven’s little half-acre, we see so many different types of wild animals on our property. And we don’t even have a half an acre, just 9000 square feet or so. A few days ago it cooled off again so the sunshine felt nice and warm, not too hot. Apparently something else thought the sunshine felt nice, too. As I walked from the driveway to my front door a movement caught my eye off to the right. It was a snake! The surprise snake was over two feet long and red in color, so we think it was a red racer. It decided it didn’t like me coming too close so it slithered off under the bushes in the planter.
Everyone else in the family but me had seen at least one snake since we moved into this house a little over three years ago, so I was very excited to finally join the snake spotting club. And I got to see it up close and in all its snake-like slithering glory.
Given the occasional rat problem we have I say there can’t be too many snakes in my yard!
