close encounters

the snake hunter in our neighbour's yard with the tiger snake.

i was alarmed to discover a tiger snake living under my bag of potting mix. i do like to make friends with spiders and lizards but poisonous snakes are way out of my comfort zone. we rang the council and minutes later a "snake hunter" arrived. after a rather thrilling trans-backyard chase he finally caught it and took it away- not before making quite a mess though. no more bare feet gardening from now on.

Eek! What suburb do you live in?

we live opposite a nature reserve with numerous signs saying 'beware of snakes', but still it had to slither a long way.
