Snail Smile

I never thought seeing a snail in my garden would make me smile, but this stripey number on my hosepipe yesterday did just that. Guess what happened next...

  10. What a wonderful photo! I'm a bit schizophrenic with snails. If they're inside their shells, they have a merciless death. But my little nephew calls them 'horns' and I then feel guilty if I kill them when they are moving about as my nephew likes them so much.
