*A Maritime garter snake chillin’ on a sewer grate
While chatting with my mother in her driveway last week, two excited boys rode up on bikes to tell us they had found! a! snake! After reassuring them this little guy was not dangerous and was surely more afraid of us than we should be of him and that no, they should not ride over him with their bikes, we returned to the driveway and those little buggers got a stick and pushed the snake into the sewer. Sigh.
*My mother’s hanging basket of nasturtiums, still going strong and feeding pollinators
*A giant crate of lettuce at the farm
Who’s that weirdo taking pictures of lettuce? That weirdo is me. But I mean, come on, look at all those shades of green.
*The leaves starting to turn in the backyard
I’m not sure why our trees are always behind all the others around here, but it’s starting to get pretty out there.
