or actually surprisingly fast – for a snail anyway – this one covered about 2 metres in less than 30 min.

must have been tough in the tall grass (due to constant raining I had not been able to mow the lawn in days.


I think it is our duty to try and save anyone in need. This little Bumblebee ended up in some trouble after heavy rains (I think) and sat rather exhausted on a Lobelia flower in our front garden. We picked him/her up and gave some honey…..put him/her on a flowering shrub after a while. Some time later no bumble to bee seen, so what happened next is unclear.
