It was a warm night with light rain, almost a mist. My husband had been telling me about all the snails he sees on the sidewalks at night. I, of course, asked him to bring one home. In the morning, we awoke to find a snail had escaped it's jar and was crawling over our kitchen counter. We watched it's fascinating beauty. I was a little surprised. My favorite part was watching the eye stalks emerge. In just the right light, I could see a thin clear membrane first, then the inner dark eye slowly creep out. So elegant. We all hummed to "snailie" a lot too (it helps bring the eye stalks out.)
and this is a pretty cute:
about a snail that has been living with a blogger for over a year and the outfits that she makes for it!
