I try to be in tune with the natural world. The balance of Nature. I live and let live in my garden, scoffing at pesticides and herbicides so that natural predators will eat what comes natural to them. But may I say ….NO SNAKES ALLOWED! In an earlier post, I welcomed the friendly garter snakes in my stone wall. They are non-aggressive and scurry off at the slightest movement. But there were two massive snakes along my driveway today, and I am sorry but I am screaming,
NO SNAKES ALLOWED!
But the ghastly sight of snakes on the driveway stopped me in my tracks. How will I go back out there? I spent the rest of the day inside. I began to read, “The Big Burn, Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire That Saved America.” So, not an easy read, but with the specter of those snakes out there….. may I just say that August has started off in a bumpy, jumpy slithery fashion!
