I love to go out in the mornings and collect my new cache of lovelies. I love to pick the fresh jonquils and daffodils and then place them throughout the house. Spring! Spring! Spring!

This morning when I was picking flowers this is what greeted me in the yard!!

Snake!!! Ewwww!!! I didn't see it until I was right there with it!! I had my face right there by it (shiver) and talk about ruining the moment. I really didn't know I could still run that fast. I don't care what kind it is they're still scary and yuck! Isn't it ugly?? :-P

Sorry PETA and the people who love snakes, this girl DON'T. Just thought I would share my heart attack moment.

Here's the e-mail I got from my husband after hearing this:

Hey Pumpkinator,
Hope you didn't kill it. It's a king snake. It eats other snakes and rodents. It's good to have this snake around the house. I'm sorry it scared the life out of of you.

Isn't he sweet???

Hmmmmmm, I wonder how long it will take for me to forget this and go back into the yard??

I'm with you about snakes! Darn things scare me silly. I've had to many experiences with them to be comfortable around them. Glad to hear he's harmless and glad you're okay.

WOW! I haven't stopped by your blog in a while and what greets me but a snake! My heart is still beating fast so I can only imagine your freight upon seeing it in living color :) Glad to read that you escaped unharmed. Let us know when you venture back into the garden.
