Wyatt ???? Oh my god I laughed when I saw his picture with the bowl (was that there all this time and I missed it ?) .. cool cat being Jack's worst enemy .. walking away from the camera like that .. black cats have a whole different personality .. they are "COOL" ! haha
Oh my lord .. if I ran across mister snake even without a bulging belly I would be running and screaming (and it is hard for me to do two things at once girl !) .. probably making an ass out of myself all the while ? some gardener eh ? LOL

Ewww...that is one big garter snake! What did Jack think of it? My little Spaz would be yipping & yapping, lol ;)

Hi Cherry,
LOL that was a huge bulge in that snakes tummy! The gross thing was the toad was kicking and squirming around trying to get out!!!!

Hi Joy,
It was rather frightful! I had just been working in that area pruning dead flowers. Mr Snakey was in there the whole time hunting for lunch!
Wyatts picture has been there for a month maybe!!!(-:

Hi perennialgardener,
I didn't let Jack catch that snake. He was shaking and whining the whole time though. He wanted a chance to let that toad out!!!!

I think frogs are better for the garden then snakes, better on the nerves too! Better send that snake out into the woods. ~Jacque

Hi Jacque,
Yeah frogs are much better. They don't bite either! I will have to keep and eye out for Mista Snake.

I will live with garden snakes, but that's it! Are you sure this is a garter snake? That sure is the biggest one I have ever seen.
Yuk!! :)

Snakes have to eat too I reckon. Poor froggie but that is the cycle of life. You will have more frogs from the tadpoles in the pond. Love all the clematis you have and the cactus also! I had cactus while in Texas but had to give them up to move to Germany. Darn customs and all. sigh... Love your glass plate flowers! What a cleaver idea along with the spheres from the whiskey barrels! You are so full of great ideas girl! The foot growing in the garden about made me fall out of the chair it was so funny. The baby owl, what a treat! I hear them but never see them in our woods. Kitty in the bowl is cute. My two monsters are on the desk looking out the window as I type.

I'm with Esther (Shabby Cottage . . .) I know snakes need to eat - I just want them to do it somewhere else - out in the field, not in my garden. Cindee - I have enjoyed looking at your blog. Thanks for your posts too.

Hi Shabby Cottage Collectibles,
I know!!!(-: Have a great week too Esther!!!

Hi Meadowview Thymes,
Yup that is a big garter snake. It was the biggest one I have seen so far too!!!

Hi Skeeter,
I wanted to perform surgery to rescue that poor frog! It was kicking and squirming like crazy!!! It was gross. I know the snake has to eat too but can't he go somewhere else? (-:

Hi creekside rummager,
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a message(-:

That gives me the creeps!

I'm going to join the "poor toad" chorus because I like them WAY better than snakes! Did you actually see him eat the toad or you could just tell by the shape of his belly? If that happened in my garden, it would be one of those things that you don't want to look at but can't look away.

Hi Hocking Hills Gardener,
Ewwww is right!

Hi flowergarden girl,
It gave me the creeps too!

Hi Kathleen,
The shape in his belly was a large toad shape. Poor thing and it was kicking and screaming to get out. It was sick!
