This would have been a great day for weeding. It rained early in the morning and in the evening so the ground is very wet. The weeds are all over, the creeping charlie and dandelions are supersized. But am still afraid to go there especially that I don’t know what kind of snake is out there in the garden.
My cousin pointed out to me that Naperville has been invaded by snakes this season. See link here. All that rain and their natural habitat has been replaced by heavy construction of subdivisions. The past Winter has been very bad too so they say the critters are all out of their hibernation looking for food.
It is the same thing with hummingbirds. I bought a feeder for them and hang it by the red rose vines but no luck. None ever visited and I have not replaced the nectar solution from the first time.
I have a habit of getting close and touching my plants – but what if there’s a snake staring back at me by the peonies? LolaWi gave me this scenario yesterday that the snake might come back and be looking for its eggs. Then what?
