Look before you mow

Nothing gets the adrenalin pumping like having the patch of long grass you are about to  mow part to  show black scaly  skin.  It always takes the brain a few more moments to  supress the flight  instinct and register that there are patches of  lighter scales and eventually, legs.

Note to self – check ahead of mower!

Okay, she wasn’t happy about being moved off the lawn but is that a reason to be rude?

    Now I remember why I don’t like mowing the lawn! Neck high rye grass in Harrow with a push lawn mower.

  2. Achoo. Allergic to rye grass. I have to push my mower too 😛 Not enough room between trees for a ride on :/

  3. She’s gorgeous! At least she’ll keep the snail population down. 🙂 I’ve often wondered why I love lizards, but really really hate snakes!
