Garden Visitors

Today while I mowed the lawn the kids played with our new Garden spray wand until I have 3 girls screaming and jumping and spraying something in the rose garden.
I look into the corner and this guy is rolling onto himself trying to escape the hose spray and all the crazy girl screams. It turns out they say they rescued this frog from the snakes mouth. I am not sure you can tell from my crappy cell phone pictures but the frog is a hand full for a 7 year old and the snake can't be any fatter than her pinky.
I am a snake hater so I told them to leave it alone and went back to mowing to prevent myself from screaming and hitting it with a shovel myself. When I left for work I peeked again to see if everyone was OK. The snake was gone and the frog had moved on as well.
Tonight I will be peeling back all the covers on my bed to make sure he didn't move into the big bed while I wasn't home.
I know, Nature ....blah, blah, blah. I hate snakes no matter how small and innocent.

I love watching them (snakes) from afar. I am pretty sure I will be checking my covers too~ You should have seen the snakes in Florida when I lived there!!! EVERYWHERE
