The other day I was on my hands and knees literally crawling around in the dirt, planting transplants and seeds in the garden. I took a break and stood up, out of the corner of my eye I saw something right next to me moving.

It was this guy

 

Who chose to slither its way right past me and through the garden.
Needless to say, these are the times that I believe my guardian angel was looking over my shoulder. If I had been on the ground when it slithered within inches of me I would have: (1) screamed and (2) jumped which would have scared the crap out of both me and the snake. I am quite sure that nothing good would have come of that. Instead, I was standing, able to grab my Iphone and take these pictures — all without the screaming and jumping which while entertaining I am sure as it would have been to my husband who was somewhere in the vicinity… it would not have been good. Nope. Not at all.
A few minutes later I walked to the opposite end of the garden where I had stacked some big rocks to get one and guess who was there? Yup. The snake. Gosh, that guy is quick. Otherwise, there’s more than one and I just don’t want to think that. So, yes, he is one fast snake. Yup, that’s it.
