My flowers - and the main reason why I hate to garden!

Life has been busy lately and I haven't had much free time to blog!

So, where have I been?  Just around my yard!

Here are a few photos of the flowers blooming around here...








...and then this appeared out of nowhere:


and that, simply, is the reason I hate to garden!

He hissed at me, while flapping his little toungue - so now there are mothballs all around the landscaping - and I haven't seen him, so the mothballs are working!

  3. Oh my gosh, Patti! I have to say that all our years on Long Island I never came across a snake {thank God!}. Last Fall, doing a little clean up near the hydrangeas I planted, a mouse ran through. I almost lost it! Headed straight to Ace down the road to get some bait before they decided to make their way inside the condo for the cold weather.

  4. Patti, you know I love to garden, but wouldn't want to share my space with a snake. Our neighborhood has had an influx of rat snakes this spring. They are actually good snakes because they eat rodents, but they are huge. I'm not comfortable around snakes either. '-)

  7. Your garden is lovely It is good to know that mothballs repel snakes! Where I now live snakes are plentiful, although I haven't seen any as yet--and hope never to!

  9. When I saw the snake I had to look to see where you were from. I didn't know about mothballs and snakes. We don't have snakes here. Maybe it's because we have hawks. They hang out at the golf course.

  11. Your flowers are gorgeous, but I would have a tough time "getting back on that horse" after seeing the snake. We saw plenty when I was a child living in Louisiana. When we moved to Arizona almost thirty years ago, I truly expected to see rattlesnakes at every turn, but I've only seen one in the wild in all that time. I'm still super-cautious, however!
