Anyone who hates snails, do not read as you will think I am bonkers.
During the hot weather we have put out a bowl of water for the seagulls and the foxes to drink from.
This morning when I looked out a snail was merrily making his way down into the water.
Oh, how cute I thought, he is having a drink.
But the fact was he couldn't stop, like on an icy path he was sliding to his doom.
I only notice this when I looked out for a second time and saw him submerged.
I got my crusader cape on and flew out of the back door and rescued him, putting him back on the ivy.
And in case you've never seen it before, here is a snail saying 'thank you' with a smile. lol
and wending his way merrily back to all his snail brothers and sisters.
My ivy is a snail sanctuary.
