“With a few flowers in my garden, half a dozen pictures and some books, I live without envy.”

The weather's been unusally warm lately. I hope it doesn't bring the snakes back out. But if it does, at least the kids have been taught not to go near them.
If they see a snake, they tell me. And I tell their dad.
Larry caught this nearly six-food canebrake rattlesnake in our back yard two summers ago. Rattlers grow big here in the southeast. This one was on the prowl for a mate. Now he's prowling around in the middle of the game preserve, where we relocated him the same day after getting some photos. I was the photographer. And no, I didn't get as close as it looks like I did. I've got a good zoom on my camera. ;-)
