On Thursday Rebecca in the Woods posted about Garter Snakes getting into someone’s house. I commented on how I hadn’t ever found snakes inside before.
So what happens on Friday? The photo above is of our garage (badly in need of replacement I might add). What is hiding in the crevices?
As mine and the neighbor’s kids discovered, there are Garter Snakes! My wife ran out and took this photo above. I guess the snakes figured out a way to climb up there. It’s not exactly inside my house, but it’s pretty close.
They found some nice looking resting places. I’m not sure whether they are possible mates, or siblings, or just happen to be neighbors.
Regardless, I’m glad to see them. Remember, Garter Snakes are harmless and they eat some common garden pests like slugs. Encourage them to be in your yard!
