That was a first.......
I went out to water the flower beds this morning. Moved the hose cart about 6" and saw something slither. Went back to the garage and got a shovel, just in case.
Moved the cart again, and sure enough, there was a young copperhead. He was not happy to be discovered. Even less happy when I introduced him to the shovel.
We have snakes, but that's the 1st copperhead I've seen here in 12 years. Hopefully the last.
Not how I wanted to start the day outside.
