I don't know how this picture never made its way on to my blog before. It's one of my favorites. North and I donning our best snake battling gear in front of our house. I remember this day. North is looking at a huge concrete truck precariously parked on our driveway during our drainage renovation. That's why we're standing in dirt. We pulled up all of the brick pavers and had rock-stamped concrete put in.
This was taken in the early summer of 2010, which was a bad year for copperheads on our property. Six of them met their end with a shovel. I normally leave snakes alone, but after a copperhead bit our dog, Jake in 2008, I have become a copperhead murderer. They are beautiful and I do admire them, but I cannot share my land with them. Afterall, I have a little boy in froggy boots to protect.
