Today it rained. That’s a big deal around here. Only one other time, since February, has it rained. I am using the term ‘rain’ rather loosely, water did come down from the sky but not for long. I managed to take the picture of the rain drops before it quit.
The snake was discovered by one of our, no, strike that- ‘my’ cats. I could hear her meowing outside, not her normal meow (if you have a cat, you know what I mean). I followed the sound to find her reaching into a small opening between two potted plants on our porch. I picked her up, she was not happy about this, took her inside and grabbed my camera.
