|Snakes in the garden|

Just the thought of coming across a snake in the garden sends shivers down many people’s spines, even those who claim to love nature. As one who is not particularly bothered by them, it’s hard for me to understand the extreme reactions that some people have when they see one.
Here in Paulding County, we’re not likely to encounter venomous snakes in our gardens and by far the most common one you will see is the garter snake. Just last week, we saw one by our garage and then a few days later, another by the swimming pool. These were the first two snakes we’d seen in many years and only the third and fourth ones ever, in the 37 years we’ve lived here at Our Little Acre.
