Garden Pest Fun...

Summer Snailz
Copyright Michelle L. Palmer

Had to have some fun with our daughter...
She loves to take evening walks
with our black lab~
They're buds!
Some snails disturbed their stroll...

We have had a lot of rain, so the flower beds
seem to be full of slugs & snails.
They devour plants!
The other night, several S&S's were on the brick
path...our pup was sniffin' them out
and our girl was doing her best to
relocate them across the road!
Slimy~ Messy~ Yucky!

So I made some her favorite color!
Tie Dye!
Now when she steps on them in the dark
(bleck!!!!)
She just pictures them in full color...

Hope your day is wonderful!

I suppose we would all love those pesky snails a bit more if they looked like this!

Thanks for your very kind comments. I don't seem to get much time for bookbinding these days but I shall try to find time soon.

Love your colouful snails. They are actually a favourite subject for me, just the brown ones but they do have great patterns. In my garden, a song thrush has been bashing the snail shells all day and then eating them.
It would certainly brighten up the garden if they come multicolored.

Pretty snails. I would love to see those silver poodle pictures! (Smile) ~Mandy

Your Daughter sounds adorable. I love the picture you painted, so pretty. Do you sell your pictures? I am wishing you and your family a beautiful Holiday weekend.
Hugs,

So much color!!! I love it! I'm just sitting down to much neglected visiting blogs this morning. I hope your summer has begun in glorious fashion!

I love the snails, Michelle. On my site, I did a bug--kind of with the same idea... (not as good as your's)I don't like bugs, but figured I could draw and paint some that I would like---figured since I was 'inventing' them, they could be any shape or color I wanted... therefore: 'A Bug I Can Truly Love'. If you take a look at my site, it's on the left, near the top. Beautiful snails!
