A snail enjoying an early morning stroll on my hosta!
What is your favorite time to enjoy your garden? Mine is bright and early in the morning. Everything is wet with dew. The birds are hopping about trying to be the early bird catching the worm. The sun is peeking from behind our trees. It’s cool and calm with the hint of things waking up. If you are really lucky the mosquitos haven’t woken up yet.
One of my favorite things to see are the snails as they make their way back to their daytime sleeping spot. This pretty good sized snail was enjoying a little morning dew on the hosta as he finished off a busy night. Sometimes I find them far out in the driveway and I usually pick them up and place them back into a nice shady spot to settle in for the day. Yes, I know they can be a pain, but unless they are massively eating one of my favorite plants, I feel that we can co-exist quite nicely.
