Ugh. We've seen three snakes in the yard in the last two days. Harmless garter snakes, but they took me by surprise each time. Not enough to make me scream or jump, I just wince and shoo them away. They are surprisingly aggressive little critters and are as likely to stay as flee. I'm surprised how big and fat they are. Moving a bit slow, but they were definitely out sunning.
I wish we didn't have quite so many snakes in our yard, but I keep telling myself that this must be the sign that spring is truly just around the corner.
Can I pack up the winter coats and gloves and scarves yet?
