Ooh, beautiful, atmospheric stuff Gretel. I take it you didn't need the 'Sport' setting on your camera when you photographed your little guest!
Great riddle! Sounds Hobbity. How big is that snail?
Lyrical. Autumnal. Heavenly. I love the picture of you there, on the floor, sneaking up on that snail. :-)
Lovely pics pg. I love snails even more than I love slugs!
I love snails when they are not in my garden eating my veg! He is quite small Eric, about 2 centimeters maximum.
I've just put this riddle to Mr Nick.Talk about twenty questions - "Can it fly? Has it got two legs? Four legs...six legs? No legs?!!"Hee hee, we know how to have fun!Gorgeous photo :0)Ericaxx
Beautiful snail picture, pg. Love the shapes those seed heads make.
I love snails. I have lovely brown and cream stripy ones in my garden. This doesn't stop me squashing them though when I catch them on my veg.
Great riddle, very Anglo Saxon, and great photographs.
A lovely little snail, but he looks so huge
Such happy little things are snails - and so much nicer to pick off plants than slugs. Though don't tell the chickens I throw them over the fence - they'd be most put-off!
The photos are quite lovely. I actually remember the riddle from when I was young (took forever to come up with an answer).
Hobbity riddle, yes! :-) What a fun and unexpected place to find that guy. (I'm glad (and jealous) to see you outside).
Lovely photo...I love riddles where the answer is right there :)
Fantastic pictures!And from your other post.....love your window! Wow, would I ever like to have that!teaxo
Such a remarkable photo and a very pretty chestnut snail. Whatever does he expect to eat from a whithered Queen Anne's Lace? Poor Dear.Jenny
These photographs are gorgeous! I too love snails exept when they are eating all my garden plants.
Great riddle and love the piccies !
what a lovely header.
What a joy to have a few minutes to spare out of days spent with family visits and painting walls, so that I could read about printing presses, ginger cats, bread and newts. Your writing never ceases to delight me!
Hello PG,This is first time that I have visited your beautiful site. Why did it take me so long? I loved seeing lots of your artwork, and also enjoyed the photos of how you manage to fit so much into your home. The same is so true here in this apartment, a land of piles of books, yarns, baskets, baskets, canvasses, paints, watercolor blocks, paints, brushes, pencils, cameras, old china, just all sorts of things that delight me.Cheers!
That is really a great photo. The detail of the snail is wonderful.Thanks for sharing.Hugs,Connie
