Food for Snail

How high can a snail reach? Where food is ;)

One morning I was intrigued by something on top of my white velvet. I thought it was a dried leaf but at a closer look I found a tiny snail. The little fella was chomping up the flower. I got a glimpse of what attracts snail and still wondering how it creeped up there? Look at the side view of this stem in the next pic and you will see that it took quite a lot for this small-bodied creature to get up there.



Side view...



In the shade, my impatiens bore two big blooms.



The rosy rain lily shot up a few new blooms. The frequent afternoon rains must have been keeping the bulbs busy -- keep producing blooms. 



The blooms look like trumpets from the back...



Seeing this tiny bloom is a sign of good health as, for a long time, this small purple waffle plant has not been showing any sign of new growth. Glad I moved the plant :)



My sandpaper vine has not finished with its flower. This was the third bunch.



The oxalis seems to like the current cooler and rainy weather. The bulbs are growing vigorously and bore many blooms. How lovely!



Keep your plants blossoming :D

  1. Beautiful flowers! Still dry here, so only small amount of snails visiting our garden.

    1. It has been raining every day since last week. Never water plants too late. The soil needs to dry up before dusk to avoid snails coming to the garden ;)

  2. All blooming what a joy to see. I always like the rain lily but never have success with this plant. I also like the sandpiper vine lush flowers.

    1. I seldom water the plant to let the rain give the bulb a shock to send out flowers. Anyway, this rosea rain lily doesn't bloom often and often times only one two blooms at a time.
