I found this snail this morning on the post outside my office door. He’s been lurking around for about two weeks, but this was the first time he was out where I could get my thumb in the picture for comparison. They are making them big this year, I think due to the relatively mild, wet spring we had.
I used to have a snail in a terrarium in my office, and if I felt I could do this big guy justice, I’d set it back up again, but I’d rather have him just outside my office door in my step garden, even if he does eat my Hosta. (grin) He’s a good reminder that slow and steady gets the work done. And did you know that snails are both male and female? How cool is that? This guy has been around long enough for a name I think. I’ll call him . . . TS.
