There are times I am SO glad my kids are not into collecting wild critters. This would be one of them. We were having a seemingly nice Easter visit with my sister's family at the farm when one of my lovely nephews found this:
Yep, a lovely little waking-up-from-hibernation garter snake. I consider myself good and woodsy at times but I draw the line at snakes. My sister is equally enamored with the slithery beasts but is doing her best to be brave and excited for her little guy's discovery. Meanwhile her husband is off quietly building a terrarium. I think a sisterly trip to the spa is in order.
Hopefully our Easter egg hunt tomorrow will turn up nothing but chocolaty treats. Happy Easter!
