The Carrot-Eater Caught in the Act!

Garden snail (Cornu aspersum)
I am officially living in the UK now. I am also officially unemployed :) (big fun, right?), but spending time productively by attending an intensive TEFL (Teacher of English as a Foreign Language) course, which is really time-consuming and demanding. So far, I have come home hungry and tired every night, with a lot of homework still to be done. I tend to go to the garden to relax for a little while, to see what needs doing, what is new, what got eaten and so on - AND I happened to catch a garden snail right in the act of nibbling a carrot leaf! These creatures are very common here and they are everywhere! Several times, they have made home in the watering can in a way that they blocked it and we couldn't water.

But they are way too pretty to be angry with them, I just love them no matter what. And if a situation comes that we will have to live off our garden and everything is eaten by snails, then I believe that snails will be the first thing we will eat. Muahaha.

    1. Yes, they are. And I bet that snails are tasty for some frogs, too. I am getting through a plan to bring some froggers into the garden to take care of the slugs. *demonic laughter*
