I Mowed a Snake in My Yard

A couple years ago, I began mowing a 'snake' shape in our yard. Google Earth recently updated their aerial photography for our area, and the snake is now visible.

The 'snake' winds through some apple trees, and has become a kind of mini wildlife habitat. We have pheasant, deer, and other animals living and visiting on a regular basis. I was originally going to go with geometric shapes, but settled on the 'snake' as it was easier to mow.

Update: Microsoft's mapping site,, has a Bird's Eye View feature. I got some other pictures of the snake from there.

They finally took a new picture. Cool. It needs a little more detail though. Maybe it would've been better if they had taken the picture when the grass was green.

The grass is green (Over the septic tank).

No, I think that's probably your drain field that's green!!
But the snake looks really great!!
