An Uninvited Guest

Tonight we had an unexpected guest trying to come visit-a snake!  Can you believe it?  We have lived here a year and haven’t even seen one snake yet.  Not one on our nature walks or the hours we spent in the garden.  When I spent a summer on an Indian Reservation I saw tons of snakes every single day.  Rattlesnakes at that!  I saw an average of 3-5 snakes every single day so I think I have seen enough snakes for the rest of my life.  😉

Anyway my mom drove up our driveway to pick up my sister from Christmas play practice and rolled right over it (on purpose).  Yikes!  I am so thankful it didn’t make it into the house!  I’m not sure exactly what type of snake it was but I do know it wasn’t a friendly little garden or black snake.

    Wow, what a great photo! Of course, I’m glad *I* wasn’t the one who saw that in my driveway! 😉
