A REAL SCARE.......a body

Posted: 02/02/2016 at 07:50

This exceptionally warm winter has led to animal as well as plant life not going into a dormant stage

early this morning on my usual walk to the beach a sight to chill the blood.  Fortunately I carried a torch or I would have stepped on it.....and goodbye to Verdun folks /........

the biggest snake I have ever seen in the wild out there just lay there half curled,half stretched out.  Without a word of a lie it was 5' long at least and the thickness of my wrist.  Just did not move but thought I could hear a warning hiss under the noise of the sea.  In my panic I nudged my torch off so beat a hasty jump retreat.  I got to turn my torch on again not sure if it pursued me and the thing was still there.  My dog was well away.  Got nearer thinking it was dead but it moved...maybe the shadow created by my torch .....and I beat another hasty retreat.

still pretty dark and had to think about others walking out there.  Another regular walker was approaching ....he has 3 small I waved my torch up and down as a warning.  He gathered his dogs and held mine whilst I approached the snake.....not an adder, far too large for that, and not a python either.  Got to 6' or so and to my horror the realisation hit me hard.  It was







a piece of rope 

Oh no.....NOT AGAIN

Tetley, Dinah has just told me to buy more plants so what can I do?     However I am overwhelmed by your kind offer.....cuppa too 

(expecting to be treated to a meal tomorrow so I will save some cash for more plants    If I don't buy Big Issue this week I can save even more ....always solutions)


Anyone done any gardening today?
