Drama in the Garden

 The Drama in the Garden

The players:
A common king snake
A spiny lizard
A zucchini plant

The plot:
Act 1
Snake chases lizard
Lizard runs

Act II
Both run amok into the
netting humans put around
the zucchini plant to keep
animals out.

To the rescue;
MD & RN make surgical
attempt to release the snake,
Lizard already dead,
zucchini not looking good

Final Act
one dead lizard
snake released to go off to
a death with dignity in
Tombstone roses.
Zucchini replanted.

Moral of the story
"Don't interfere with mother nature"
And leave the netting out of the garden.

  1. WOW! I see Ralph has not lost his skills as a surgeon.
    What exactly did the snake die of? Poor thing.
    Are you growing zucchini? Or Marianna?
