    'Hidden' is a past participle used as an adjective.

    Re: Participle

    Hidden: You r the snake (who has been) HIDDEN in my daffodils.
    Hiding: You r the snake (who has been) HIDING in my daffodils.
    HIDING means the action was voluntary and s/he did it him/herself.

    Niamadpour, if you are going to answer questions on this forum, please do not use abbreviations such as "r" for "are".

    Yes, you can because the 'snake' is still hiding. You couldn't use weaving in the second because that action is finished.

    The snake could be "hidden" of its own volition. It does not have to mean a passive construction.
