Found In the Yard; Feeling Awful 

Today while mowing the yard two subjects of interest caught my attention. The good news observation was this Jack-in-the-Pulpit seed head shining such a bright red against a background of browns and greens. Unless something drastic happens, we should have more visits from the Jack fellows next spring.

Not too far away I found this young fox snake in the last time of its life. If I hit it with the mower, I did not see it. Even though I didn’t see it, I have to assume I somehow have something to do with its failing condition. I feel terrible that I contributed to the death of such a pretty snake.
