More wildlife photos! A small Bull Snake. They are a very aggressive species, he definitely was NOT happy at visiting the Visitor Center. See the "S" shape he's in, ready to strike at us. And strike he did--but he was just a small snake, maybe 14" long. We were careful to stay out of reach, although not poisonous, they DO bite and the small teeth can break off in a wound.
See how well he blends in with the dirt? Bull Snakes eat anything they can, from insects to lizards, frogs & toads, mice/moles, and will climb in trees and bushes to raid bird nests for eggs and hatchlings.
The tomato plants are still blooming--
I don't think they will make tomatoes this year!
I opened my bargain jelly rolls--
Very happy with the mix of colors and patterns! Yellow/greens to blues to teals to grass greens and purples. No plan for them yet.
Its been a gamut of fall weather. From 30-40F to 89F with bright sun on Wednesday, then a cold front blew in from the north--almost blew us off the top of the hill! Thursday was rain rain and more rain. Cold and soggy. I stayed in the camper ALL DAY!! Summer is over, fall is here and it will be time to pack up the camper and head home. Sigh I LOVE summer!
