James has sharp eyes, too. Awhile ago, he spotted something in our big flame acanthus....a rough green snake (Opheodrys aestivus aestivus). He/she was probably getting ready for bed. Then WE showed up. Poor thing. Anyway, I was tempted to go holler at Carol, our neighbor next door. She LOVES snakes. NOT! Instead, I decided I'd dedicate this post to her.
In the meantime, the grumpy snake slithered off. He/she moved faster when James tried to catch him/her by the tail. Poor thing. Sweet dreams, and come back soon (but not when James is around....or Carol).
