    Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

    I decided I would be a nice wife and mow our backyard.

    I heard something when I got on our lawn mower but since we have a lot of lizards I did not think much of it.

    I was a bit surprised when I backed up the mower to see this guy slither out.


    I am pretty tolerant of snakes that are outside.

    Copperheads and other venomous snakes are the exception.

    This is the second one we have found at our house.

    Every time I see them my first thought is, “let’s move north…”

    It had made itself a nice little den under our ramp going into our shed.

    Thankfully it stayed there until my husband got home and took care of it.

    They are such beautiful creatures it seems a shame to kill them but they are very dangerous.

    Do you have Copperheads where you live?

    Maybe I should come live with you…

    I think I will be wearing boots and carrying a shovel to the shed for a while…
