We found our first snake of the season today. It came out from the woods surrounding our house. Luckily it was only a black snake. I don't particularly care for snakes (scared), and I don't want to come in contact with any in the gardens if I don't have to. Last fall a snake decided to make it's winter home in an old comforter I had left on the porch from when we moved. Are there any plants or any ideas for detering them?
