    I feel a bit guilty when I squash them and I never torture them to death with salt.

    Perhaps l could be an associate member?

    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Love it pbff image.  Don't have any photos to share yet.  I have loads of those little "humbug looking" snails from Dove's pic in my garden, along with larger brown shelled ones. 

    It will be interesting to see what everybody's got around the country.

    Lyn, I remember you posting about your snail, he was a magnificent beast ?image.

    I think I will delay my membership. The slug and the Lilly beatle have been my main nemesis's and they will never be on my christmas card list. But, as the hymn goes "All things bright and beautiful all creatures great and small" . So they may have a right and a reason to be part of natures rich tapestry. But that appreciation ends when all my efforts to protect my plants goes out the window

    Happy gardening to all and a very Merry Christmas to all (except slugs) ??

    See original post

     Thank you Steve for putting me right on the words.  All these years I've been singing "All creatures grunt and smell".

    I do have pictures of my snail, sadly died, but not in vain, his shell is used as an ornament down by the pond, I have seen tadpoles in there sheltering, 

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    Good morning all.

    Thanks to pansyface for joining and making us laugh - 'Snails in Comedy' sounds like a good topic for discussion sometime! ? 

    Philippa - thank you. However, you did encourage me to start this Society, so don't forget that you'll have to take equal share of the blame... I mean, credit!! ? 

    Sorry to hear about your snail Lyn, but lovely about the tadpoles. See! Another example of just how useful snails are to the environment as a whole!

    Are there any more snail supporters out there at all? image
