When our front lawn was just a bunch of sad, overheated grass, very little lived there. Since I have added Gabe's Garden, young garter snakes showed up in increasing frequency. This one is now all grown up, and a permanant resident. He (or she) was spotted several days in a row in one particular flower bed, but also surprises me occasionally in the meadow or a nearby bush. A few days ago he left me a skin.
Welcome to our garden! Since 2007 we have been striving to turn our lawn into something beautiful, tasty, ecologically sound, and a centerpiece of our community here in Franklin, Massachusetts. We hope you enjoy your visit!
