A Garden Visitor

This was the first day to work in one of my gardens.

My plans are to reduce the butterfly garden’s size by one-half. I haven’t decided what to do with the garden in the background.

I started weeding and had a good start on the area where I was working … until I saw a garter snake … relatively close.

  If you look close under the left eye, you can see where it had started shedding.

It stayed in place while I took pictures. You can see the end of its forked tongue.

  3. What a well spotted photograph. Is it something to be frightened of?
