What I saw on my walk last evening:
Blotches of riotous color (azaleas)
Dogwoods in bloom
furrows in our vegetable garden
man redoing his roof
girl out walking her little dog
one dead, but pristine, Copperhead in the middle of the road.
It didn't really bother me, really. I'm not afraid of snakes to that extent. I did bend down cautiously to make sure he was really dead, though.
