I had another post ready to go today but need to add something else to it. Blogger does not like to let me drag pictures like it once did. I am finding it difficult to add a new picture to a post so since it will take time to add my new picture, I will just write a quick new blog for today!
Okay, the topic: Do you roll your Garden Hose after each time you use it? I wish I lived in a perfect world where I have an underground watering sprinkler system. This water would come from the lake that my dream house sits by. Now, since I don't have this dream house or a lake in my back yard, I must rely on Nature to water for me. When Nature is not cooperating with me, I must unroll the hose and drag it all over the yard to my many small gardens scattered about.
We are lucky to have a water spigot on both sides of our house. But even at that, each faucet has 200 feet of hose attached to it. It is a pain in the butt to drag the thing around the yard in the Heat and Humidity of a Georgia Summer. So once I am finished with the watering bit, I am so tired from dragging the heavy hose around that I some times think I should leave the hose lying on the ground for the next time I need it. But nope, Miss Organised and likes everything in her place, (that would be me) has to roll up the hose each time she uses it.
So I would like to know, DO YOU ROLL UP YOUR GARDEN HOSE? In the Garden...
We spent about 8 hours in the yard on a 92 degree day yesterday! Here is something we spotted in our driveway culvert to get us to slow down and enjoy more wildlife. This one was a biggie in my book! Thank goodness for zoom lens or I would not have this picture!
A beautiful shade of orange-red on the belly side and rather large in size. We did not see the entire thing stretched out as it slithered back into the culvert when it saw me. I looked in our snake book and the best we can tell, this is a Red-Bellied Water Snake! Yep, water snake in our yard! It was in the water run off area (dry creek) so normal it was following the water stream looking for Frogs, Salamanders and Toads. They can grow up to 4.5 feet long and they are NOT poisonous. That's good to know as this was an intimidating snake but now that I know what it is, I will be less fearful if I see another one in the future.
After a long hot day in the yard yesterday, we are headed to the lake for a boat ride to relax! Maybe we will see something else fun to share with you!
Everyone have a Good Day!
