I looked for some photos taken I'm not sure how long ago, of a nice sized garter snake sunning on a twig in the compost pile. I couldn't find them, but came across two photos taken 5/28/08. This one is the orange hawkweed I thought looked similar in leaf to the weed of the neighbors' in a previous post. You can see a little plant, to the mid left, getting ready to spread. Directly to the left, is a wallflower not blooming yet.
