You're right, it's not where they belong, but it's so convenient to have them just outside the door! The red arrow points to...the little bull snake. (He was about as big around as a crayon.) Later, I noticed that he was no longer there. I'm really hoping that he didn't decide to slither into the basement. I'd like him to know that his home is outdoors. We have enough pets in the house.
And speaking of pets, I took these pics of the dogs today. Lionel and Tuppence were unavailable for a photo shoot.
Misty, lying close to wherever I am at any given moment. She snores. Loudly.
When I took this pic, I was sitting at the kitchen counter, checking my e-mail.
Yes, I know I should purchase a new rug for on top of the dog bed, but she hasn't complained yet.
Bridger, looking his usual handsome self.
I've got to take him to the vet next week for his shots. He's 10, and it's getting harder for him to get into the Jeep. I'll have to provide a ramp for him.
Last, but not least, the visiting grandpuppy.
She gets a Lyme booster shot next week and then she can go home.
* From three strawberry plants that I purchased last spring, I now have 30-40 strawberry plants which I'm transplanting into rows. Next are the raspberries. Since I neglected to wrap the chicken wire fencing around the raspberry patch last fall, the local bunny population survived the winter by eating raspberry canes. I think it's a good time to move new little plants which are coming up to a new location, inside the fenced-in main garden. And I also need to plant some asparagus crowns. Rodents manage to take one or two asparagus plants per winter.
P.S. The following photo is posted especially for Judy S. who mentioned in a comment that she loves pics of parents reading to kids. Actually, this is Grandpa reading to the boys when they were out last week. I think the book is Tifky Doofky by William Steig. We have several of his books and read most of them to the grandsons while they were with us. Steig's stories are so much fun!!
Tifky Doofky holds everyone's attention
