Snakes, Mushrooms, and Daisy on Canada Day
I love having a back yard - it's so interesting. Today when I was out picking up shit in the back yard I saw this little snake - he is probably about a foot long and he didn't seem to be afraid of me at all.
Of course I didn't touch him at all - but he stayed right where he was while I ran into the house to get the camera and take a bunch of pictures of him - I even used the flash and he didn't care. Even the snakes are laid back in Nova Scotia! haha!
These mushrooms are popping up all over my back yard too - should I be worried about them if the dogs decide to have a snack of them? I've never noticed them before in previous years - but they are in a part of the yard that last year was wild bushes and wasn't accessible - so the dogs couldn't have eaten them anyway. Does anyone have any idea what kind of mushrooms they are? Can I eat them? Are they magic mushrooms? Can I make some money? haha!
Daisy went in for surgery yesterday - my dogs are on a conveyor belt of surgery! She's had a growth growing inside her right eyelid - so yesterday she had it removed. She's been very quiet last night and today - she is not very happy. For some reason she's got these growths growing on her body - and I think this one in her eye was particularly bothersome. Last September she also had a growth removed from the inside of her eye and several spots on her body.
Poor Daisy. Some days it's hard to be her.
