a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Picture This...

Beneath the tranquil waters
Within the reflections
Life
Sometimes hides
A snake or two

It looks like a Diamond Back snake. Good thing the dogs didn't see him.

Tranquil waters are so lovely BUT we must always be aware, what may lay underneath such tranquility.

All the best Jan

Perhaps you snake will drown. He'd be hard to kill with a hoe. Or is it a good snake?
I've known a couple or more hidden snakes. Beware.
