Slithering Across (Almost) Wordless Wednesday With Linky



Our back yard butts up to a preserve area. It has it’s pro’s and con’s. When it rains it can get flooded and the mosquitoes tend to like this area which makes it difficult to enjoy our small back yard area but one of the pro’s is that we get a lot of amazing wildlife.  From cardinals, woodpeckers, Cuban Knight Anoles, blue-jays and snakes. It is definitely nature up close! We recently had this Black Racer slither across our patio. I hung out underneath the swing set and for a while stared at the kids through the back sliding door.

  25. I hate to be the dissenting vote, but I like snakes πŸ™‚ They are very skilled at keeping the rodents away here where I live.

  27. Ugh, I have a very strong disliking for snakes! They make my skin crawl!
    Happy WW!

  28. Ummmmmmm Ew.

  29. as long as it is not venom filled – I am totally okay with sharing my space with slithering nature! ha.
    And it occurs to me that I have not actually seen a snake in the wild in a long long time. Never even in my own garden, but surely there must be some there?!!

  30. I’ll keep my distance, thank you! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for linking up at Life at Rossmont.
