Can you believe we are already nearly two weeks into the new year? I know I can’t. Time keeps flying by! However, I was able to walk with my favorite, little human recently and we were on the trail of snail.
This is what we saw.
I know my friend Cherity, over at Almostfarmgirl, will know what this is instantly.
Can you guess?
Answers at the end!
First bloom of the New Year. I love yellow flowers.
Mushrooms! Now, you know I love a mushroom, but these I dug up……
These are PLASTIC! Plastic mushrooms in the forest. Look at the upper left-hand side, see where they were burned and melted at one point?
After we had discovered all we could, Addie led the way to the pond, aka, ditch.
She is good at telling people where to go.
I have no idea where she gets that from……
We discovered some cool, glass jars along the way…..
Which I was left with for company while Addie ran to get her mud boots.
She returns, mud boots in place.
And, no snail is safe.
Well, they are ‘Safe’. She is very careful. But, they are about to be discovered, so to speak.
It’s kinda like ‘No Child Left Behind’.
Only with snails. And minus silly tests. And taxpayer funds. And……I better stop there.
She found a snail with eggs! Which was appropriate after spending 15 minutes lecturing me about snail mating grounds.
I ask you this, how much can a 7 year old know about snail mating grounds?
It WAS really cool, and she returned them carefully to the ‘nursery’ so they could hatch in peace.
I know nothing about snails by the way.
So we left the mating grounds and nursery and headed home…..
Spying some cute calves and Bon Jovi on the way…..
Thanks for walking and snail watching with us today!
And that picture in the beginning?
It is the trimmings off a horses hoof. Like when you clip your fingernail only bigger. And with nail holes.
Have a great week y’all!
