He was interesting to watch, but I am not keen on going behind the bushes to turn the hose on or off. While we were watching it, it slithered along the house toward the coiled hoses.
Yeah, not going to be recoiling this hose for a while!
Maybe I will stamp my feet and make lots of noise before I enter this garden to turn the water off and wind the hose back in place.
Onward and upward, or downward as the case may be. I am pulling weeds along the water today. Keeping my eyes open for snakes and other critters. I was not disappointed, all sorts of things to see today.
I am happy to report this Lobelia is very happy, blooming non-stop since planted!! My hope is that it will be reseeding in this great spot.
The water had a lot going on today. I was happy to see a Great White Egret, perched on a submerged log, fishing.
Not sure if it got anything to eat with this move.
There were a lot of fish in the water today. I was surprised to see so many fish close to the dock. Maybe they were near the Egret a minute ago?
They were circling something, I couldn't tell what or why, just this giant whirlpool of fish. Once they heard me on the dock they came up to see me (yeah right!) and then they scattered.
And finally, the Groundnut is starting to bloom. Apios americana, I found this one last year. The blooms are hanging over the water, so my photo is not as sharp and clear as pictures from last time.I had forgotten how much lower the water was last year. There is no walking along the shoreline yet.
Well, after falling on my rear end a couple times while pulling out those tough weeds, I decided it was time to go in. My arms were really itchy from the grasses....hope I don't have more chigger bites!
Once in the garage, I found another little friend.... hope he found his way out of the garage.
