Today at Fieldhaven

So far, I'm starting to catch up on computer stuff after losing the net for have of yesterday.

Supper is in progress: a meat curry (I forget if the stew meat is lamb or goat), a potato curry, and a berry cobbler.  The berries are currently macerating in a bowl.  I think they're mulberries and black raspberries but honestly I just kinda grabbed dark berries out of the freezer.  They all blend well with each other anyhow.

my_partner_doug mowed around the wellcap and helped me trim the honeysuckle hedge away from it.  I cleaned up the fringe of grass with the grass shears.  This process revealed a small snake, which I moved out of the way so it wouldn't get stepped on or sliced by the grass shears.  I like snakes.  I was busy so I didn't take a close look for ID beyond "small constrictor: harmless & beneficial."  Looking at a few online references, I suspect it is probably a western fox snake or great plains rat snake
