I found something
like this in the
garden to play with.
He was so much fun!
He curled this way
and that way and
moved in and out of
himself and I kept
pawing and pawing
at him and he kept moving and moving.
Then Mom came along and took him away
from me! I looked around for him, but he
was gone. Then Mom explained that he
was a baby garden snake and that they
can be good for the garden and for me
because he rids the garden of animals
called 'rodents', not to be confused with
our house rats, Blanche & Al. Mom IS
concerned for the tadpoles later when
they become frogs and leave the pond.
