Tell Me Thursday


We were visiting family last week when my oldest came running into the house to show me what he found. He is fascinated with creepy crawlies of all kinds and will hold almost anything. This particular snail was unique in that instead of pulling into its shell when picked up, it continued to move around. It moved across N's hand for 15 or 20 minutes before N had his fill of his new friend and set it free again. I love the way the sun gives the snail a translucent look and and the fact that it casts a shadow on N's hand.

Yuck, I hate slugs, snails, whatever they are called!

N is a much better steward of God's creatures than my boys. Rh went out with a bottle of salt and "took care" of my slug problem in my hummingbird garden. The little assassin!

What a great thing for him to experience! I have never seen a snail do this. When I was little we had all kinds of slugs around and there is no way I would have picked one up! My Tell Me Thursday is here.

Great picture! We don't see any snails here in the desert, but my kids were fascinated by the ones they found when visiting WI. This one looks so neat! Thanks for sharing the story!

What a wonderful photo. Nature has so many beautiful things if we allow ourselves to see and experience them.
