Running For The Hills!!!

18.7.2013 (2)

It’s been a funny ol’ week.
At times it seemed that where ever I went, armed with metal implements (forks, dibbers, hoes), the ‘Lightning Gods’ would follow doing their best to frighten the b-jeepers outta this ‘storm woos’.
On other occasions it felt as if ‘them upstairs’ were in cahoots to see who could dump the most amount of water on me in a single hour for a laugh.
On the days that I forgot my iced-flannel the sun came out & did its best to try & melt this Tidy Gardener.
And so to Friday, the end of the working week….I’m dry, still in one piece & have not been zapped by lightening or deafened by the cracks of thunder….’I know’ (said them upstairs)….’let’s scare the living daylights out of her with a snake……mwhahaha!!!!!’
Yes! 30 seconds from the end of my job today and I come across a snake, the first one I have ever seen that’s not been surrounded by glass!
Apparently, despite being at least 20 foot long (ish’) it was ‘just’ a grass snake. I didn’t hang about to discuss.

A snake is a snake is a snake as far as I'm concerned. King cobra or grass snake they're all the same - I'd have run a mile screaming my head off. One of my biggest fears is to 'happen' across a snake while gardening and if I did I think I'd change my hobby pretty pronto.
Hope you don't find another one!

I prefer the snakes in my life to be surrounded by glass too, Jane! I will hurt myself over a snake sighting. Hope you've recovered. :-)
