This is the path between the house and the shed, gate and everywhere else we need to go! Pretty much the same situation as Julie really, until it goes - we don't.
It's disappeared now, somewhere into the nether regions of the garden, lots of places to hide unfortunately. All I can say is that it's a lucky, lucky little copperhead that it managed to get away. It's not John or I that I worry about, it's the dogs! Miss Martha would last about 10 minutes if she was really lucky and the old Cocker, well, suffice to say that we are 30 minutes away from the nearest vet! No chance!!
I don't actually have anything against snakes, our youngest son has a beautiful 8yr-old childrens python called Ned (as in Kelly), I just don't like them in my garden around my dogs.
Oh yes, just in case you think I'm totally mad, the photo was taken with a 70-300mm Nikkor lens on my Nikon, no way was I getting too close to that little baby...........
I'll be back tomorrow to show you my latest BoM from Sue Spargo, it arrived today!!
