music, gardening and my dog

Sleeping carpet snake

After playing piano at the Kooralbyn golf resort, I was leaving and Nea on reception said: “There’s a beautiful carpet snake just outside.”

I wasn’t thrilled to hear that. It was dark, I had to get to my car and didn’t want to step on anything…

“I’ll show you,” she said.

There it was, on one of the bicycles in the rack. Yep. It was beautiful. I must be becoming Australian to think that.

(It might have been a different story if I’d come across it myself, especially in the dark!)
