How many is too many?
This is the sight we see each morning. Yesterday, I counted 12, but it is kind of hard to know exactly with all those bodies and heads. What I wonder is how many we DON'T see. How many babies are in the rocks somewhere? But mostly, I am still doing quite well. They will not harm me. And both Tom and I are wondering if possibly the snakes have anything to do with the scarcity of ticks, ladybugs, black flies, and mosquitoes this summer. Maybe it is just coincidental. Maybe it is cyclical. But I will take snakes over those other creatures anyday.
