    A small whitish, oval egg. Couldn’t figure out what it was — until it “hatched” it was a lizard!

    I remember the first time I dealt with dollar weed in my St. Simons Island yard. The kids and I started pulling and pulling, thinking that we were actually going to pull up China through the grass! Finally the big wad of root bulbs came out and my son yelled, “Mommy! It’s a rattlesnake!”

    The strangest thing I ever found in my garden? Hmmm, I live a boring life! i guess the most exciting thing was a couple of snakes under a rock when I moved it! I screamed so loud, my neighbors came out their back door to check on me! Lol!

    A gold wide band wedding ring. Buried very deep in a rock garden. No inscription but it was very old. We have lived in this house for 30 years and found it the first spring as we were building flower beds.

    An old branding iron that dated back to the late 1800s to early 1900s. Our town welder, who was 80 at the time, didn’t recognize the brand but nonetheless there’s no telling where it came from!
