Who Scared Whom?

Ed and I spent the better part of the morning walking the farm's trails, stopping to inspect our seedling trees and tying new orange ribbons on their branches. For the first time in weeks, we were dressed in only jeans and sweatshirts – and still we were hot when out in the open fields.

I offered to show Ed my secret crossing point of the creek that flows between our neighbor's pond and ours. Just as we got to the creek's bank, we woke a sleeping/sunnying snake and he stuck his red tongue out at us, warning us to get away. I'm not sure who scared whom more. 

Just a harmless garter snake, but I was pretty sure he was a poisionous copperhead!
