Snakeskin

Continuing the blitz on the garden, today quite close to the house a rather beautiful object turned up buried in the grass.

It’s a complete snakeskin, about a metre long.

Snakeskin

It’s not as fragile as it looks, but delicate.

I think it probably came off a grass snake because that’s the sort of snake I’ve seen, but I don’t suppose it does to be too complacent.

It will go to a good home. When I found a snakeskin once before, our cleaning lady asked to have it. She’s Albanian and the more traditional of them believe that a snakeskin gives protection from the evil eye.
