I love Saturday mornings: I wake up a bit later and drink cup after cup of tea while returning emails and – she admits, blushing – scrolling through the latest Ebay offerings.

The snails seem to enjoy Saturday mornings somewhat less, since it is also the morning when I have time to check on their whereabouts. As of this morning, four snails have been gently but firmly relocated from my salon gate and my mudroom door.

  1. oh I liked this photo so much! Are you the one who took it?

    The snail may not have liked it so much: after “posing” for this photo, I moved him from the mudroom door to the garden.
