Cepaea hortensis - White-Lipped Snail and Helix aspersa - The Garden Snail
Homo sapiens- Little Girl!

Another garden favorite around here is the Snail! These gastropods were found during a recent dig around the garden and then joined us for lunch! Ok....I can see one of them has gone missing in the picture above but I can assure you Maisie is eating an almond in this shot!
Both these species are very common and Helix aspersa is actually edible although considered more of a nuisance in gardens than a tasty treat!
Hope you're having a great Friday!
