This morning at 7:30 when watering my shrubs (compactas and Burford hollies), I saw a fat light green worm like thing on top of the mulch. It must have gone back into the ground because I did not see it when I looked a few minutes later. It was about 2-3 inches long I think. Was this some type of worm? Please don't tell me it was a snake. Thank you.
