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

    • 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 :)
