Slimy Things Herald the Arrival of Spring

Slugs, and snails, and earthworms – how lovely!  It’s not just the robin puffing out its chest (and flying into windows to attack the rival male that is its own reflection), but the small things that slither and slink that announce spring is peeking ’round the corner.  Buds everywhere – crocuses and daffodils – I never used to care about such things, but now that I’m older I anticipate the brighter light and warmth to come.

    That is an excellent snail! I once read about slugs – how they defend their territory and have battles and bite each other… all… really… slowly….
    I’m going to try to find one of those big banana slugs and get a picture.
