I moved part time into this woods home 2 years in July. Brought all of my belongings before the holidays 2 years ago this fall. It was a dream of many years and seems I have lived here forever.
All has seemed so quiet. An occasional visitor from the woods which thrilled me. Every time I saw a wild turkey, deer, frogs, toads, birds, butterflies, all my emerging plants and all the other visitors I met with my camera. I truly felt I had been given a gift.
The critter who has been digging under the concrete air conditioning pad may have been caught.
A possum found in the trap over the weekend. Holes have been filled and trap reset and will see
if anything else makes a visit
Two recent visitors have really unnerved this one woman. A skunk and Callie chased it away.
An hour ago I looked out on the deck and their was a 10 foot long snake basking in the sun.
Called 3 neighbors and no one answered their phone on this 90 degree afternoon.
A call to the young man who cut down my tree and I was in luck - he arrived within minutes.
A chicken snake.
I am familiar with them
They were at the old farm house and I am aware that they are a good snake.
But it has been a long time
since I saw one this long
I was fearful it might be something else
Brad took it further into the woods...
The last few days after all the rain and now very hot it seems I am having a lot of visitors.
Ants and carpenter bee's - do not like.
Also now that all the wildlife is getting use to me
the birds do not fly away
toads and frogs do not get out of my way
several ticks spotted and like to crawl on me
Guess this is why the snake was sunning on the deck.
So I have the thoughts - I love it here so much
Does One Woman in the last years of her life belong at the edge of hundreds of acres of woods?
But guess even in some sterile surroundings
there will be critters...
Hey some of them might be unwanted human critters.
