Spring is such a beautiful time of year. The mornings can be quite sunny and warm with lovely days to follow. This morning was quite nice because it had rained overnight and just cleared before I left the house for work. The sun was out and so were the snails. I did my bit for the environment and killed thirty seven of them on the way to the bus stop. They may have been your common garden variety and not some mammoth African variety but who cares? There's thirty seven of the little buggers that won't be munching on my garden.
What intrigues me is the fact that at least half of them were making their way towards grassed/green areas from the road. Where exactly did they come from? It's not that you see snails sleeping in the gutter and they sure as hell didn't cross the road. So, where were they hiding?
