Woo-Hoo!  I use plastic ones in my blueberry bed.  As long as you move them around every day, they keep the birds away pretty well!

How awesome is that? You are a lucky gardener. What kind of snake is your neighbor?

I don't mind non-rattlesnake snakes... as long as I'm not startled at close range, LOL!

I have two new "buddies" in my garden.  One is a garter snake and he last popped up when I was watering one of my raised table tops YIKES!!  The other on is a king snake.  Both are great with the rodents I have around here.

It is a rat snake, and we are beginning to believe this could have been somebody's pet at one time and became too big to handle.  It is between 6 and 7 feet long, and it has muscles like J. J. Watt.

We have now seen him/her 3 times in our yard, and each time it gravitates toward us, not in a threatening manner, but more like when you call your dog.  It gets to within 6 or 7 feet and just stops and stays there.

The only bad thing about him/her is that he/she climbed this oak tree and ate all the eggs out of a bird's nest.

I know that rat snakes are in the same class as corn snakes, and I have seen corn snakes become quite affectionate with their owners.

Somebody mentioned rattlesnakes.  We have timber rattlers in our area.  One neighbor had 2 large adults removed from inside their gas grill.
