Our home made tree snake has evoked quite a response on G+ so here's a couple of photos of Sid. He was made out of an old coil from a hot water cistern which was coiled around the bough of an old pear tree. His head was made from a watering can rose with old brass knobs for eyes and a strip of left over copper cut out for his forked tongue. Over the years, a clematis has scrambled up through Sid's coils and whilst we have quite a few visitors, I think he largely goes unnoticed. Maybe we should introduce a competition - find the snake in the garden!
