I was out putting fresh water in the bird bath and watering my climbing roses and spraying water into the neighbor dog's water bowl which looked yucky.
I always pick catapillars (sp?) off the roses and stomp them with my shoe when out there. While I was picking the 'worms' off, I noticed something wound around the trellis. Upon further scrutiny I realized it was a snake, watching me. It was a bout 4 1/2 feet long and had a black and tan pattern on it. I tried to get a closer look at his head to see it's shape. I read somewhere that venemous snakes have a triangular shape head.
I moved some rose branches over but still could not get a good look. I did discover though that some little bird and built a little nest right there. I determined that snake was just a chicken/rat snake having a breakfast of eggs. I told him he would start eating catapillars instead, he was welcome to invite his/her whole family. It did not reply. I was sort of glad, too. Last I heard of a snake talking to a woman it caused a whole lot of trouble!! ;-)
