After the Rain

This area fortunately has a lot of snails, rather than slugs. The snails actually eat the slug eggs, which is a great help. They are also very choosy about which plants they like, so I have less damage than in my past garden where slugs were predominant. In this garden the snails love lupins and dahlias, newly set cosmos and cleome 😦 , and parsley! Some dahlias will not make it I fear, although I cover them at night. The parsley is grown in pots with copper tape around them (it works!). The last lupin has disappeared… so I will give up on them!

The snails here have beautiful shells, and are quite fascinating when viewed close up.

Cute, don’t you think…

And this curious little fellow below caught my eye… I think he was eyeballing me…

This one was almost transparent, and such a pretty shell…

Fascinating…

Do you have both snails and slugs in your garden?
