Ratcatcher?


I disturbed two garter snakes in the greenhouse last night. This one was in the middle of digesting something - the arrow is pointing to a distinct bulge in its midriff (well, OK, if I had to draw an arrow maybe it's not very distinct in the photo, but it was quite clear as it wriggled around, trying to avoid me!). I'm hoping this is another ally in my war against the rodent population.

I'm trying to think it's beautiful.

No effort needed to be impressed though.

Very impressive.

Your blog is wonderful company for me today, as I have too much of a head cold to work in my own (tiny) garden.

Thanks for all the comments Lisa - hope your cold gets better soon!
