Slow and Beautiful — Snail

I'm slow, I'm sticky…
I'm yach, I'm eeks…
I'm awful…
But I'm beautiful.

See how beautiful I look when I pose like a fashion icon. My clothes are well crafted for photography with the green grass given by the misty, moist, cloudy monsoon. See my magic in the mysterious season…

  25. Yikes ! I had an invasion of them in my garden they ate all leaves and flowers ! I had to put a special product and then could collect more than 30 shells ! Now I don't find them beautiful anymore, lol !

  26. You have caught in exquisite detail a garden inhabitant that not all like it appears from the comments. Snails are often found only by lakes or streams in Canada, not in people's gardens.

    Thank you for visiting my blog.
