I hate thistle, really hate it. And, my yard has a lot of thistle, a LOT! I was about to remove (again) some thistle that has invaded my flower beds and just will NOT go away when I looked down and saw this fella (or gal, or whatever!) guarding my thistle.
As much as I hate thistle, I hate snakes more. The snake, he (she or it) won, and the thistle is still there.
Nope, I have no idea what it is, but, I am pretty sure it is not the Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake.
I really hate thistle. I really REALLY hate snakes!
Hope he (she, it) does not decide to sun himself (herself or itself) tomorrow, I am gonna have a shovel, you listening Mr. (or Mrs. or It) Snake??
