Snakes Alive !!

I didn't get a lot of time to sew today,  as we were doing other things.
But I did get the purse sewn after I got home from Swan Hill.

 I just have to wait for a clasp now as I don't have one.
Hopefully they will come in soon.

 Yesterday I forgot to say what was in the backyard.
I went to move the hose ( gray water ) and turned around and there was a Brown Snake in my Elephant Garden.
DH got the shovel but the not so little snake showed us he wasn't in a very good mood, and shot back into the Agapantus and we lost him.
DH thinks that he may have gone up the creeper and over the fence and into the scrub.
The creeper is down to the ground on the other side of the fence, so DH is going to take the whipper snipper out there and give it a good trim.
Lets hope the snake is gone.

 Look at the little clouds.

I have not a clue what the creeper is. It was here when we came and we can't get rid of it ( believe me we tried ) so we put up a trellis and let it go.

I think he needs a trim and a bath.

The babies are going o.k.

Dh and I did a lot of cleaning outside, he with the shovel and me with the 4 10 ( gun ) for those that don't know it's a little shot gun.
When he went to work I took Grandma shopping and Jacob to get his hair cut.
So that is why I haven't sewn much.

The girls layed only 13 eggs today.

Until Next Time.

Snake? After your new chicks? Bad snake! Bad!

Your creeper looks remarkably like the Carolina Jasmine (Gelsemium sempervirens)that is trying to take over my entire yard. That stuff has underground roots that go for miles and up pops a new plant to deal with.

I think your girls are too interested in the new chicks to be productive right now?

Keep an eye on the new babies Michelle, snakes love em.
Maybe the snake went next door to visit Mrs.B. Don't think she'd want it either.
