The temperature today is around 80 degrees. which is perfect for me to sit in the shade. I have to admit that I am so used to the Florida weather, so have leggings, a top, and a fleece shirt on.
We were both out on the patio, and my husband had fallen asleep on the sunny side. I caught a glimpse of something behind me, in the reflection of my glasses. It was a snake. I can’t remember what I shouted, but it woke my husband up. He missed it slithering behind me, to the side of me, and then lifting his head up towards him, before doing a 45 degree turn, up through the grass, and out under the fence.
My heart is still pounding, as I have this phobia about snakes. I don’t even like to see them on the television. We have lived in this house 3 years now, and that’s the first one that I have seen. He wasn’t too wide, but he sure was long.
My neighbors say that most are garden snakes, and that they are good, as they eat all the bugs. I think I would rather use bug spray.
I obviously didn’t take a photo, and went on to Pixabay for a non real snake picture.
