Snake in the Grass

When we went to uncover the rhubarb that we'd covered with leaves and sticks over the winter, we found that someone had moved in to the house we'd so thoughtfully built:

It was a good thing we were moving the leaves with a stick! But it was almost certainly not a dangerous snake. I can't really tell what kind it was from this online field guide. Maybe a Northern Brown snake, although it didn't seem to have a yellow belly.

Happy Spring!
