O enjoys using her outdoor mortar and pestle (bought a couple of years ago from a yard sale) to grind acorns to make acorn stew! Yummy!
When she moved the mortar and pestle, there was a baby snake sleeping under it. I briefly contemplated trying to catch it, but O was not at all interested and the snake slithered away quickly.
Does anyone know what kind of snake this is? I know very little about snakes, but I tried to get a close look at his eyes and head shape to see if he was poisonous, and I don't think he was. However, I could be wrong...he moved quickly, and I was a little nervous :)
