When you live in rural Florida, you teach children to run away from every sighted snake and call for help.
Will was playing the other day and did just that.
The snake in question was 36-40" long.
It was an Indigo Racer which is a beneficial snake to have around
since it eats other snakes and rodents.
We enjoyed watching it for a while and then it 'raced' under a pile to hide.
A preemie hat is now on the needles, no fancy stitches this time.
I have 8 hanging baskets along the front porch.
Every Spring the wrens start several nests in my plants but never finish one and make a huge mess in their indecision.
Well, this time, they have not only finished building one,
they have even laid eggs in this one!
(I found out quite by accident when watering this plant
and almost getting hit in the face by the exiting parent!
So I stuck my finger in to see if it was 'ripe'.
The eggs are not visible but I think once they hatch,
I will be able to get a cute picture!)
In the studio, I am putting the finishing touches on my latest class exercise-
While I work, Will paints at his own easel.
(Ethan is sleeping during this painting session!)
My next project-it has sat in my wishlist bucket long enough.
We went and bought the yarn today and since we were in the big city;
We stopped at the water fountain park for some fun!
And savored the 'big' beach.
