  1. Don’t get my hubby started on snails, yuck, I hate them as much as beetles and they love our Hostas, they try and eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and mid night snacks!!!!!!! Think they are getting bigger every year too.

  2. Well, as long as you don’t start eating them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight snacks! Ick. I did avoid using the picture of the snail that had come out of its shell – one of them was a weird one, with a branched eye-stalk with two eyes on!!!! But I thought that might be a bit much.

    We only have one hosta, that we bought a few weeks ago at the Malvern Garden Show. It’s in a pot, and, touch wood, so far the snails haven’t found it. Though it’s looking a bit yellowish – maybe it needs a bit more shade. It’s years since we’ve grown hostas, as we just gave up with them. I won’t use slug pellets, because I like having thrushes. Can’t have everything!

  3. Keep up the good work – with the camera and on the running track! I ease myself back into the running shoes every now and then and keep it up until the first hamstring injury hits me. Then it’s back on the bike in nice flat Amsterdam. Great admiration for those who can keep running

    And thanks for the ‘like’ on my photos.

  5. Lovely photos for this week’s challenge – well done!

    Aquilegias are so pretty and delicate, aren’t they? I love them 🙂

    HA – yes, the snails look like they have just eaten your petunias and are sleeping it off! LOL
