SMILEY SATURDAY - Help ! The snails are coming !
More participants here
When I looked at my freshly planted petunias, I was surprised that they looked rather skinny especially in the flower pots along the entrance.
At a closer look I saw SNAILS ! Never ever in the 33 years we live in this house I had a snail invation ! And not the naked once, no of course in my garden they had to move in with house, furniture and probably children ! I absolutely have to write a letter to Al Gore and ask for explanation ! Is it the global warming or are these space snails under cover ? Anyway I had to do something before they ate up the whole house and us included !
I declared "WAR " ! and put this snail killing product everywhere !
my skinny petunias attacked by 6 snails, the blue grains are poison (for snails only)
The result this morning was, that I collected around 30 empty snail houses, the corpses probably had melt with the product or went back in their space shuttle. How disgusting ! I am now a snail mass murderer, I, a such peaceful person ! But peace and love with snails doesn't work !
Even our letter box was invaded, and they had eaten up an invoice, which in itself was a nice gesture, but we probably will get a reminder !
and here is my harvest from this morning !
