Lovey photo, LeadFarmer. My snake was off like a shot so not a good photo.

Well I was out with my DSLR camera taking photos of a disused WW2 RAF barrage balloon site when I came across the snake. It would have been frustrating to have seen it and not had my camera with me.

Must be great to see one in your garden. Fascinating to watch I bet?

An I right in thinking grass snakes aren't poisonous but may still bite?

Lawn edging

Or you could lay a length of timber baton sat just below the grass level, letting the grass creep over the top of it. That way you can mow over it and use edging shears against it. Not much use for curved edges though!

Singy, nice foxglove. They are my favourite plants, along with alliums, clematis & lupins. It could be worth you collecting the seeds and sowing for next year.

One identifier is the white "dogcollar" clearly evident here.

Your right, but I didnt know that at the time so I kept my distance!!! I had to google it when I got home.
