Look First

This cute green snake didn’t find rose thorns a problem, as it wrapped itself on a stem.

I had been picking off some diseased leaves when I noticed the snake, that was well blended in with the stem of the climbing rose.  It was very happy to stay still for some photos.

A Day in the Sun


Everyone enjoys a nice warm sunny day and these snakes are no exception.  These four are all cuddled up together soaking in the sun.  Green  garden snakes are not poisonous and help to keep pests under control.  They have been hanging out around the house and even on the porch.
