After a prolonged spell of mostly dry weather, the rains had started to reassert themselves. I decided to get out for s short walk anyway, but to leave my camera at home. But when I stepped out the front door I was almost immediately confronted by an abundance of snails. They were clearly relishing the damp. It was late and very overcast, but the lovely strawberry tones of that first brown-lipped snail had me thinking that a quick tour around the garden could precede my longer wander.
Another Brown-lipped Snail in paler, more pastel shades.
A really tiny snail, possibly some sort of Glass Snail.
Elsewhere in the garden, Brown Garden Snails abounded.
Apparently, they are good to eat. I’ll pass thanks.
I’m not sure which kind of snail this is…
…but the swirls of white and dark chocolate colouration on the shell were delightful.
The retaining wall in the back garden was not only busy with snails, but one of the crevices in the wall…
…was occupied by a very bronzed and relaxed frog. Relaxed in as much as it didn’t seem in the least bit bothered by me or my camera.
