So.....I was out in the garden picking some fresh basil for my pasta supper when I heard a tussle in the bushes. I see a frog and a snake. But something's going on. I watch and I realize this garter snake wants to eat this fairly large frog. I watch a while longer and then remember the pasta is on the boil and I go indoors to rescue my supper and then go back outdoors to finish watching. I grabbed my camera and recorded it here so you can see. The first weird noise you hear is either the frog or the snake. I heard it a couple of times before I got the camera on and was quite creeped out. I'm sorry that I sound like someone who is talking to a small child. I'm really not talking down to you. I guess I was in story-telling mode. I'll let Hazel Peach watch later. She understands me.
EDIT: If you don't think a garter snake could have eaten a frog, you must go watch THIS video.
I stopped recording the snake and frog after I realized this could be an all-nighter. I mean, they could have stayed in this position all night, I think. They were each waiting the other guy out. Waiting for a wrong move. I promised myself I was not going to "meddle in nature" but then I decided that really, I AM part of nature, so I tossed a small stick over by the two and guess what? The frog jumped away. Sorry Mr. Snake. I caused you to lose your supper.
Here's my supper. More tomatoes. It's a very simple fresh tomato sauce over angel hair pasta. There's no cooking except for the pasta. I just tossed some chopped ripe tomatoes into 1 or 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Added some course salt, pepper, garlic and fresh chopped basil. Let it sit awhile and then add hot angel hair pasta. Stir. Sprinkle on some Parmesan cheese. Eat! Yum! I'm glad my supper didn't get away.
