    Hedgerow or field snail? Not sure what they do when it gets cold, but lovely picture that reminds me of warmer days!

    • Reply Charly Dove November 3, 2013 at 9:51 am

      These snails live on our Red Hot Poker stems and make an appearance when it’s wet. Not sure what kind they are or where they go when it’s cold but they’re very pretty 🙂

  • Reply LearnerMother November 3, 2013 at 9:10 am

    That’s an awesome picture, so clear. He’s holding on tight, that’s for sure!

    • Reply Charly Dove November 3, 2013 at 9:54 am

      Thank you very much, he was probably holding on tight as I was scrabbling about next to him!
