We were off in MY little park today - exploring off the beaten track like we do - mom calls it "going bush". With all the rain we have had over the last couple of weeks there are little trickling creeks everywhere and some a bit more than trickles. We came across one that was about four foot wide and Mom was just pondering what was the best way to get across it when a big old frog suddenly jumped into the water and when Mom looked to see it she noticed a little snake sitting right there a few feet to our right. She snapped a couple of pics quickly and then because she knows snakes pick up vibrations she stomped her foot and Mr Snake just slid away. (Okay - we admit it - we doggies didn't even see it! - Mom says that is probably a good thing)
As you can see - the trees are finally starting to turn green - we figure in a couple of weeks we will have our shady glen back again. In the meantime we are enjoying the scent from all the native dogwoods which are flowering like crazy.
