Shh... Molly's on a Hunt

in our big backyard...

What is she hunting?

Well... first they twist THIS way...

And then they slide THAT way...

And sometimes you can even see their beady little eyes...

Hissssssssss....

Garter snakes!

(Anyone have any idea what the evil plant that the garter snakes are sliding around in is? It's some sort of a bush, that sometimes gets thorns... I've been pulling it for YEARS and it keeps spreading).

I once chased my college roommate down the street with one of these after she irritated me about something or other. Hee hee.

The plant looks a little like the ruellia (sp?) we had growing in the front yard. Ours never had thorns, though.

It looks like something you'd need to dig out, with a whole lot of digging. I'll bit the smallest bit of root left in the ground would allow it to return.

Great snake/dog photos!

I read that after you pull a weed (or grass growing in the cracks of your driveway or sidewalk) that if you pour a little vinegar in the hole that is left nothing will grow there.
