Just seen a snake disappearing into the stone heap under the soon not to be a wreck...soaked it with water but...cripes...bit too close to nature for me...
Oooh Elsa, I nearly trod on a snake on our front path the other day . It was sunning itself (yes that's right, we did have a bit of sun at the weekend) partly hidden under some overhanging plants, slithering away when it realised it was in danger of being crushed to death by my foot. Mind, it was only a grass snake - not that I actually recognised it, but I looked it up on t'internet. We often see slow worms in the garden, Steve's seen a snake before but it's the first time I've seen one.
learning to love veg…..except celery :-O
Makes me shiver, I have a serious problem with them. We have big grass ones here and adders and I am very careful when clearing brambles etc in the garden. I have seen a few that have really upset me.

I think Rosie would've had to have roller skates on to have got this one. It went like the clappers into the stone heap.......
I have see several snakes on my rounds..

And a HUGE grass snake in the sand dunes at Studland, and I mean HUGE 🙂
(well at least they told me it was a grass snake). A couple of inches think and several feet long.

We had a black hosepipe threaded through the plants in the garden for ease of watering - this was a year when the plants needed watering - and, while wandering around the garden with a cuppa in my hand, I noticed I had acquired a second hose, laying alongside the black one.
Oops! that's no hose, it has an attractive pattern along it's back.
Dashed inside to get camera, only to find second hose had disappeared.
A quick glance around the garden, and it had found an open space to curl up in the sunshine.
I'll see if I can find the pic I took .....
Aha, found it - here is the pic of the grass snake lying in our garden.
