The snakes are out of hibernation and returning to active duty here in S. Texas. I found this big silver snake streaking back and forth in the lake. I have shared info below from Wikipedia about these non poisonous water snakes. I just found out from my friend +Dietrich Lombarde last week that there are no snakes in Ireland! I thought some of my friends might like to see a snake in the lake! For a bonus photostudy, my black daylily opened! Last but not least, some baby birds in nest. Enjoy!

Daylily is the common name for plants of the genus Hemerocallis//. Daylily cultivar flowers are highly diverse in colour and form, as a result of hybridization efforts of gardening enthusiasts and professional horticulturalists. Thousands of registered cultivars are appreciated and studied by local and international Hemerocallis societies. Hemerocallis is now placed in familyXanthorrhoeaceae, subfamily Hemerocallidoideae, and formerly was part of Liliaceae(which includes true lilies).
