A few weeks ago, while I was pulling the weeds out of our garden box, Parley discovered a snail. It slowly made it’s way in and out of the cinder blocks we use to contain the dirt for our garden. Par was quite enchanted by it and declared that the snail was now his pet. He has really loved snails ever since.
Two days ago, I opened the back door to let the trolls run free in the yard. Right there on our doorstep, another big slimy snail was crossing the cement. As you can see, Parley was very excited. Vi was funny about this. When she spots a quick, tiny little insect she gets really excited and does her best to catch it. But this snail seemed to demand her calm, watchful respect because she just sat there quietly.
