Re: hosta and snakes

You LUCKY, LUCKY LADY!!!  I would be so excited if I saw a snake in my hosta
bed!!  I have had many snakes in cages, lizards, & tarantulas.  I have one
spider left and one large snake (about 4 ft. long), but I absolutely love it
when I see a snake.

When I go to the metro parks to use their bike & pedestrian paths, I am
always looking for snakes (they love to lay on the warm blacktop and the
bikers don't know they are there and "splat").  My husband and I try to get
them to move off the path. We love creation, both animal and plants.
