Critters in the GardenPosted: November 16, 2020
I always enjoy finding wildlife in the garden. This has been the year of the Copperhead. They always seem to appear just where I want to work.
I found these Rosy Wolf snails intertwined on a flower stem. I hope that means many more snails are on the way.
This Tree Frog blended in perfectly with a Moses leaf. I haven’t seen as many of those this year.
I almost stepped on the small turtle as it was trying to hide under leaves.
Another baby Copperhead ended up in my work space. Thankfully, I usually see them as I am reaching my hand into the bed. I wonder how many I miss. The Copperheads are pretty chill and will hang around to watch unlike the green garden snake I saw earlier that slithered away as soon as I came upon it.
OK…I thought I was done with this post and sure enough, I came across another Copperhead. I was dumping a load of gingers I had just cut down and there it was. As usual the snake was fine with a little photo shoot.
