The flowers and hummingbirds are about as wild as I'd care to go!

Lovely wild morning glories...and all.

Even that snake looks bearably attractive and not too scary for a townie like me.

Love the hummers! Hey, I think instead of "monkey mind," I have "hummer mind." :-)

Summertime, and the living is easy!

Love the way the ornamental bird appears to be stalking the snake.

Vicki, what kind of a snake is that? It looks pretty big---is it?

Deana -- it's a Northern Water snake and a young one, maybe two feet long. They don't get a lot longer but they do get thicker.

The snake freaked me out! I am phobic, and I live in rural Appalachia where snakes abound. Is that water snake poisonous? Does it stay on land long?

The rest of the photos are wonderful, especially the flowers. Glorious glories! And we have hummers, and I'm obsessed!
