|I found a crown!|
these past few days....well,
i started private art lessons, translated some german,
encountered two snakes!, went to a bridal shower,
helped with a wildflower tour in the wildlife refuge, hiked some,
finished planting my garden!, made bug spray, made snake oil!,
wrote cards and took lots of pictures. i'm sure that i'm forgetting
something.... :) hm,,, ? ....this about sums it up though.

|snake in the backyard!!|
i was out back in the tame yard, when (right next to my feet)
it slowly slithered down a crack - right where our
back porch cement meets up with the grass!
found out it's a prairie king snake. at least it wasn't a rattler!
however, this means being on the offensive
(starting with snake repellant arsenal).
"the presence of snakes indicates an ecosystem is healthy." ha!!
|Painted buntings are coming for the buffet.|
|The prairies are full of coreopsis!|
someone recommended a blend of cinnamon and clove oils
as snake repellant. i liked the smell of this cinnamon so much that
it's now my new perfume! "snake oil" is the name of my new scent! ha ha!
i hope you have a wonderful week...
