You may have wondered why my blog is called "The Snail Garden"... it is because of my love/hate relationship with snails. I love beauties like this Banded Snail, but hate the common brown garden snail and the way that they munch through my garden! Unfortunately we have a phenomenal amount of the brown snails. Luckily we also get a lot of frogs in the garden.
White-lipped Banded Snail
Chalkhill Blue Butterfly
First flowers on the lilac that I planted last year.
Green Carpet Moth
Luckily they don't eat carpets or in this moth's case - curtains! Their main food is bedstraw.
Another WIP finished. This felted lavender heart was made from the wool I received in a forum swap. I knitted the wool up and felted it quickly, but then it took a while for me to pluck up the courage to cut the heart shape ... I was worried that it would unravel!
