A Little Spring Cleaning, Jungle Style

We have a gazebo in our back yard.
Standing in it the other day I realized how grown up our lake bank had gotten.
So wanting this particular spot to have a beautiful view, I went to work.

The thought of uncovering a snake or even an alligator is always a little unsettling but prayer and determination kept me going this day.
However my back and shoulders are stopping me today.

The End...or the beginning.
You just never know with me.
Not one sight of a snake or an alligator.
I guess the sight of me and a machetti was a little unsettling to them.

Oh I could have been your watchwoman. If I'da seen any gators or snakes I could have jumped up and down screaming hysterically to alert you. That's what friends are for, isn't it ;0?!

Becky you are a brave lady to tackle that job. I could never do it! Bobby G. is cutting down the overgrowth on our lake edge today. I can't even take a short walk without seeing one of those slithering things around. It's that time of year. Ugh!
