So as I started to walk off my front porch today to go get our mail something caught my eye in the flower bed next to the porch. There in the dirt is a SNAKE! Now I don't like snakes at all. I am still getting little chills from seeing it so close. My son James will be excited since he is way into snakes and even has a Corn Snake at his Dad's house. Now of course I will be very leery of going out my front door for a few days. It's not like I really think it will come chasing after me or anything. I think it's just the element of surprise of it all of a sudden being there. Please tell me I am not alone in feeling this way!! I believe it is a some type of Garter Snake. It is pretty big, probably the biggest garter snake I have seen around my house. This is my new pet snake!! NOT
It slithered under my big rock in the flower bed.
