Snakes and Wreaths

Sooooo....we are all sitting in my mom and dads garage on a beautiful morning yesterday, cool and sunny. My usual antsy self took over, so I got up and went to look out the back door. Oh my god! There was a 5 ft indigo snake with his head up, laying there in the sun!!! Of course I freaked out and started panicking....ran to get my sons for help.  One of them went around the house and the other one crowded next to me.  Then it moved!! eeeeeeeewwwwww went into the weeds and rattled! OMG! Then is raced off...like my heart needed that kind of jolt first thing in the morning. lol

One good thing did come out of it tho....I discovered a bunch of very cool stuff in the woods behind the house and I made a nature wreath out of it.  We also found some cactus growing back there, dug them up and put them in pots. lol
