Of course, the original lyrics, written by Jin Stafford were: “She said I don’t like spiders and snakes And that ain’t what it takes to love me…”  Well, it’s certainly been a wonderful and  fun time at the Arizona Desert Botanical Garden (again), viewing critters, such as red robin perched high in a tree, a lone chipmunk sweeping the ground for crumbs on Gertrude’s Restaurant patio, a handsome lizard scrambling across one of the Garden’s pathway, and finally a Garden Docent displaying and explaining the black necked garter snake! Wonderful! FUN!
