Although some people don't believe it, snakes are good neighbors. Thank you, Lynn, for not wacking it with a shovel.

I see them all the time in the woods, especially on rocky ground with some water around. They catch frogs and dryer places, mice.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

   Looked out the window this morning and we have eastern bluebirds flying from the fence to the porch rail to the yard and various trees. First I have seen in many years and as far as I can remember the first I have seen in WV. One robin was chasing one away. Also several woodpeckers (Downy & Red-bellied) and an excessive number (meaning more than 1) blue jays.

Looked out the window this morning and I can see the road again after the additional snowfall yesterday.  If this keeps up we'll have 4 foot of snow down.  :-\
Thanks for sharing your pics of spring and better times.  It gives me hope.  :laugh:

I hope that the logs are under a shade tree tomorrow because the forecast says 82 and sun.   smiley_sun

It's going to take us a day longer to reach 80, only 70 tomorrow, but we'll be at 80 on Tuesday..
Birds are building nest and I've seen a few snakes slithering around... I could probably mow the grass, but I would rather wait as long as possible

Hit 80 here today. The wife and I fired up the mowers and whittled down the weeds in the yard. The daffodils are on the second blooming spree, that cold weather that hit during the Chilly Chili set em back. And I noticed that the leaves on the dogwood are about 1/2" long. The apple tree has buds a showing. and the hackberry in the pasture has turned green.  ;D

Not quite yet, the dogwoods are blooming, pear trees and blueberries in full bloom, pine trees are shedding tons of yellow pollen, oaks are budding out, but the pecan trees are still asleep.

If anyone needs 20-30 degrees of warmth, I'll send it to them. The truck thermometer has been bouncing between 85-88 this afternoon.  I'm all for spring, but we're easing towards summer a little quick

Wind been blowing awfully hard this afternoon susposed to snow tomorrow. Tumble weeds hurrying past, I wonder where they grew. The ones that grew here have been gone for months.

Speaking of Tumble Weeds,  since there are none in Mississippi, I once hatched upon the idea of capturing one and bringing it home for decoration.  Just think how neat that would be??   So we were cruising along, probably somewhere in Wyoming, and happened upon a nice herd of them corralled up and they would be easy pickings.  Matter of fact, I would have the "pick of the litter", so I parked the truck and made my stalk.  I reached and grabbed my target  :o or did it grab me ??   :-\

That very moment in time is when I learned both why they don't grow in Mississippi, and why I did not want or need a souvenir.  Mother Nature has many ways of teaching you lessons.   :P
