Snakes are out

From Tom Scarsella:
 
I saw a Copperhead in the vegetable garden tool shed on Sunday afternoon.  It slithered away into the floor space under the cabinet.  Nothing to worry about.  We'll move some things away carefully with a goal of reducing the hiding places close to one's feet.

It was a pretty little thing; maybe a foot long and not at all interested in a confrontation.  It  may have been the same one Hilary and I found hiding under a tub by the compost in January. The snake and I met again in the shed on Sunday afternoon and there was a mutual retreat.

Reminding everyone that Spring has arrived and that snakes are likely to be encountered in all the usual places.
