A Ribbon of Color

Our chrysanthemums are already starting to bloom.  This blossom was a bit over two feet long.  It’s called a red stripe ribbon snake---a member of the garter snake family.  If anyone wants to disagree, that’s fine.  I’m certainly no expert on snakes, but this is the best identification I can find.  It was driven up off the ground by the spray from the hose as we were watering, and got right up in the top of the flowers.
