    I come from South Africa and believe me those snails are gigantic compared to little 'ol UK ones. A bit like prawns, lobsters etc... No comparison

    Don't tell the French! 

    At winter's end (hard to know when that is these years ) I have lifted large stones in the rockery or next to the garden wall to uncover and deal with colonies of the blighters.

    The snow this winter seemed to kill a lot of them this time and only when we got all this rain did I see more of them!

    I think they all moved to Vanuatu and took up residence here in the warm.
    Would you like them back?

    Come and live in Scotland; it's too cold for them to survive here...

    Yesterday afternoon the weather was lovely here but it's back to the normal grey and overcast today....
