Snails

This morning I went out in my backyard after it rained and looked around to see if I could find anything interesting.

My Agapanthus was crawling with snails, so I decided to get some pictures.

I hope I didn’t gross you out with the pictures. They are fascinating little creatures.

Now I am thinking of the first time I ever had escargot. Yum!
