So, yesterday afternoon I wandered out into the courtyard to start my watering job. You know what it's like, you're on automatic pilot after a long day at work and you're not really paying all that much attention to your surroundings. You've just reached across to grab the watering can from behind the water plant container and then suddenly ....
... you notice something most unexpected! "What's that?" you're think quietly while you screech loudly and perform some awesome aerobatic actions to help propel you as far away as possible from where you've just been standing!!!
Yes folks. That's a dirty great big Python wrapped up nicely and snoozing away in my water plant container.
My heart was set all a-flutter, but no because of the beauty of this creature, but because I'm not all the keen on snakes.
I'm not an expert on Pythons, and I'm not sure what sort it is, but I do know it seems to have rather a wide girth, so I'm guessing it's probably quite long as well.
I am however, not the slightest bit interested in trying to move it along despite the fact it's crushing my one and only Water Lily plant that's growing in that container.
I cam home from work today, and Mr Python is still looking as if it's feeling quite at home and very comfy in that spot. I had no idea Pythons loved the water so much.
