Wordless Wednesday: Part of the Problem

I hated to do it, but we just had to cut down the thick growth around our back gate. I have to get out of the car and manually open the gate every time we come or go, and I was worried that a snake would attack me as I stepped out of the car one day.

Nick saw a snake dragging a huge frog (still alive) by the leg in this spot:


The day after the snake sighting, we sprung into action. This is the view from our driveway:

The alley isn't paved. You can see the tall grass where we stopped clearing (that isn't near our property so we stopped there):

Poor frog. I don't blame you for wanting a clear view and keeping the snakes at bay. Happy WW

Yep, I love animals but I wouldn't want to meet a snake on a dark night. Don't blame you a bit.
