  18. Getting off subject here but found out early this morning(still dark outside) that our neighbor killed a rattle snake in his yard. Hubby got home around 6am and the neighbor yelled at him to watch for snakes in our yard.
    That is one thing that I really don't like to know;(well nice to know) but I wouldn't want to see one.

    1. Wow!! What a reality check! Here I was smiling, drifting, thinking of all these lovely smells everyone is listing & remembering my own and bam! a rattlesnake slithering around the yard pops into my head. I'm with you & hope you don't see one either. OK back to babies & flowers...

    2. Julie; it's very uncommon to see any snakes really in our area. A little garden snake once in awhile but out of 15 years living here I have only seen one tiny garden snake but nothing like a rattler or any other snakes for that matter.
      I just hope I never come across one. Will be the first for the neighbors seeing a little old lady running as fast as she can running through the neighborhood screaming her fool head off.

      Delete
    3. YIKES! Rattlesnake? Now THAT'S scary! And I'm with Little Julie, yep, Colleen brought us all a reality check, ha!!!! And Colleen, I'd probably be running beside you, ha.

(tie) freshly turned compost pile/leaf mold/plowed ground, tied with my mom's beef roast in the oven. 4. perfectly ripe homegrown fruit/veggies - apples now, but canteloupe, peaches and tomatoes are my faves at other times. --suz, in a farmy part of ohio

    1. Having never been around that, I can imagine though it's wonderful, especially warmed in the sun. Oh and freshly turned soil/dirt smells wonderful. And beef roast, I love that smell too. It makes me look forward to dinner even more, ha. Thanks Suz!!!!
