A red-bellied black snake checking out the young strawberries on the verandah. (Yes, really, there are strawberries in there – they’re just recovering from being eaten by rabbits or ‘roos). The snakes can sometimes find green tree frogs here to snack on.
Hi Gordon, I suppose the frogs are attracted by the watering of the strawberries and the snakes smell the water as well. Seasons Greetings by the way.
Hi Richard. Yes, that’d be right. It’s not un-common to find frogs in watering can spouts too 🙂 I note your weather may have warmed up again (slightly). Maybe not a white Christmas after all?
Frog up the spout?! I thought it was just spiders Gordon!!
We still have snow on the ground and lots of ice. Minus 6 centigrade here again last night and at 11.30am it has climbed to the dizzy heights of to minus 2.4C so I have lit an open fire in lounge to help the central heating out! My sister in law from Perth, WA has been staying with us and found it a little cold. She is currently touring Europe with her son, and there is plenty of snow over there as well.
At least when I heard the score for the first day’s play at the MCG warmed me up a little bit. When I heard that England were 0 – 150 I thought, “that’s not bad but there must have been a lot of rain”. It was a few more minutes before they gave the Australian 1st innings score, he he.
Seasons Greetings anyway to you and all the viewers of your great site.
