Would get so excited at finding an empty snail shell by a rock in the herbaceous border……
I do my best to encourage thrushes into my garden to eat the huge amount of slugs and snails that eat my lovely plants. I put out bird seed especially for song birds, I leave rocks strategically placed under bushes and I chase off neighbours’ cats. However although I occasionally see thrushes they don’t seem to come very often. I do seem to have lot of blackbirds and wonder whether they chase off the thrushes?
So, when I find empty snail shells hidden in the undergrowth beside a rock I do tend to get rather excited, knowing at last a thrush has come to visit and may possibly stay.
Please join in with my ‘Only a Gardener’ meme.
I am sure there must be many things that only a gardener would do or get excited about…..
It can be anything from a whole post to a few words or even just a picture.
I will try to publish on 1st of each month – the same day as April fool’s day, but I think this could run for the first week of the month so it doesn’t clash with other end/start of month memes.
Just add a tag ‘Only a Gardener’ to your post so it can be found easily and add your link in a comment to this page.
If you don’t have a blog then please do let me know of the crazy things you do by adding a comment to this post. I would love to hear from you.
