LONGLEAF STORIES

full circle in the hundred acre wood

I wanted to step off into the rough to look for more of these fantastical carnivores, but fear of snakes kept me on the road. Buck rescued a 3 1/2 foot brown snake from the swimming pool yesterday. He said it “looked like a moccasin but didn’t act like one,” so he netted it and let it go on the other side of the fence (not that the snake cares about fences). He told me it slithered off toward the woods. The best adventures are off road into the deep woods and all along the stream bed, but after a freeze in the winter, when reptiles are mostly in their holes, is when I like to do that.

One thought on “Napping Pitcher Plant

    I don’t blame you for staying on the road. That was a “way too long” snake that Buck found in the pool and released back into the wood.
