Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Snake Alert!

A snake was here in my front garden.


It left a calling card.


It used the butterfly bush branches to help it shed its old skin.




With gloves on I carefully removed it from the butterfly bush but couldn't keep it from breaking in two.

Here it is laid out.  4 feet long at least.


The head.


I have no idea what kind it was or more importantly where it is now!

That's a big snake. Are they common in your area?

Is that a water snake? I wonder if it lives in your pond. too big for my comfort.
