This spring and summer I have really gotten back into gardening. I have pots of plants everywhere, compost “cooking” and a big pile of mulch outside.
One of the dangers of gardening, for me anyway, is the chance that I could encounter a snake. I already injured myself once this year while running from a snake that I “found” in the mulch pile. That’s really the reason that the mulch pile is still there.. where it will stay.. and decompose. I won’t touch it.
Anyway, I’ve been told that if you stomp around and make noise, the snakes will hear you and leave the area. I always carry a shovel and bang it on the ground as I walk around the yard now and my friend Tiffany said “Oh, like bear bells?”
So I got this photo in an e-mail from Amy today and it reminded me of that whole conversation with Tiffany about the snake, my insane fear of snakes and “bear bells.”
Well, this database is as good as it gets and it is current as of.. well.. a 2-3 months ago or something like that. So I’m back!
There’ll be lots of tweaking and youse guys that had links will have them again. It’ll just take me a little while to get it all put back together.
Thanks for the support!
