AlphabetPhoto: S is for snail

snail pattern movingA few years ago, the children and I entertained ourselves one rainy day, by finding different snails around the garden. Once we started looking, we realised just how many different types there were in our own back garden.

This one is the snail I remember the most. It’s shell looked as if someone had taken time to use the art/craft ofย  marketry to fashion an intricate shell.

Linking up with #AlphabetPhoto. My s is for snail. Or maybe that should be snail shell. Although, if you look carefully you’ll see that the shell is still in use.

What “S” would you choose?

      They are fun. Wonderful way to encourage outside time, even in the rain…..or just after.

    Lucas says – I LOVE snails and this one looks really cool. Me and the Mother found a snail shell a little while ago and it looked like a fossil. We’ve kept it and I took it in to show my teacher. She thought it was cool too ๐Ÿ™‚ #alphabetphoto

      Sounds like a great find! I’m not surprised your teacher liked it. We like snails too, but not on our salad beds.

      Nature is amazing. The designs can be breathtaking. Even on a small snail.

    When I was a child we used to make snail houses from cardboard boxes, fill them with grass and leaves, put snails in and run excitedly to see our snails in the morning and of course they had always vacated ๐Ÿ™‚ I do like snails except when i find them on my seedlings. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

      Same here. Not on my seedlings. I find pots and boxes around the garden, where the children have made snail homes. Usually empty, but sometimes there will be one still sleeping. ๐Ÿ™‚
