I'm not a snake fan myself either. I usually go the other direction when I see one.

AAAGGGHHH!!!

Lucky it wasn't me, if I lifted up a rock and found snakes in them, they would have been instantly turned into snake-cakes with me dropping the rocks immediately!!! You are very brave!! Well, I guess it's good they eat garden pests - now they are your very own good luck snake-charms. OK, still coming to terms with living with snakes in a garden, but I'm sure they'll keep their little scales to themselves from here on out - LOL

Yikes, was increasing the height of a retaining wall today and when I picked two of the huge blocks there were snakes in them! I HATE SNAKES!!! However, these were red racers and I am told they are good for eating snails and such so I moved one to another part of the yard with a shovel and the other one, which was the largest red racer I have ever seen, went away on his own. Now I am lifting each block with a long handled shovel first! emoticon
