This crinum has a sweet vanilla fragrance.
Buffy commenced to bark as I was getting a
better fix on the crinum with the 7'
Solidago behind it.
I stood and looked around to see this:
Take a closer look, there under the foliage:
Picture this: I was near the crinum.
I had been in there to tie up the stalks.
Then I was in there to place a hose.
Then I was making pics....
Each time I walked under the tree at left
Rat snake at lower left.
I showed him to the cat, who pretended no interest.
I tried to coax him out for a better pic, but he crawled away through
Confederate jasmine groundcover.
You can see why groundcover is mowed away to form paths.
Kind of a Rousseau effect from this direction.
I didn't tell the neighbors who came to pick figs about the snake.
The fig tree is about 150 feet away.
Buffy checked out the scene and said it was safe.
