It was at a most precarious moment when I heard the shrill tone in her bark. Poised on a slope of loose shale, bucket in one hand and weeds in the other, I quickly finished pulling the last seed head and carefully side-stepped down the embankment.
Knowing the warmer temperatures would encourage creatures to awaken from their winter’s hibernation, I was pleasantly surprised to have my camera in my pocket!
Miss Maddie was not as pleasantly surprised . . .
nor was the snake!
Coming to its rescue, I “encouraged” Maddie to sit as we watched it carefully wind itself around the rocks and disappear.
Now all Maddie wants to do is play with the millipedes! ENJOY . . .
