While digging, a whole beautiful family of garter snakes came out from under some pots out back, where they had a nice warm home. As soon as they realized I was their friend, we had a nice time looking at each other, and they politely posed for some photos. I think they appreciated the new herb garden I planted for them. After a while, they slithered off to check out the rest of the garden, then came back to hang out. So exciting to be surrounded by any wildlife, after all the hibernation.
Here are my new snakey friends, being photogenic.
