After the Rain

Yesterday afternoon it rained incessantly. I collected 113 of the above from the garden.

Lovely shell, but they're pesky little devils aren't they?

My mum used to throw them over our wall into the next door neighbours garden - He probably threw them straight back again, that's why she could never get rid of them :0)

What did you do with them?

Simone said...

Andamento - I put them out with the green waste collection!

Oh those sneaky snails! We have been lucky this year to have a pair of thrush in the garden and they have eaten nearly every one of the snails in the last couple of months

Pesky things! After the rain in my garden it is as if someone tips a bucket full of them on my grass!

With the numbers in my garden, I've been tempted just recently to try a snail recipe! Hasn't your snail got a lovely shell. x

I was wondering what you did with them too! Juliex

We rarely see snails around here, but I well remember following their silvery trail when I was growing up in UK!

Wow that is a lot! I thought we had loads in ours. Miss P and I collect them in a bucket and release them in the field. I can't bring myself to put pellets down.

Take care
