What a beautiful bloom, you have done a great job & it has rewarded you with this lovely flower. Looks like the snails go around your garden with axes Grin

A beautiful bloom Herman - I spy evidence of your revenge there - in the form of a little blue slug/snail pellet! Tongue

A lovely set ,but what a shame.
If you want the snails to keep away and dont want to use slug pellets,
keep all your egg shell's and crush them and put them around the base of your plantsSmile

Can't view V3 for some reason... But they are excellent images...
What lovely colours and the stones in V2 look like Portland Stone! Very coveted in the UK...
I had a lot of snails ans slugs here in my garden... Got the beer containers all over the ground and did a week of mass murder! At list they went drunk... I can now say that the sanil and slug population in my garden has got under control after a few bottles of wasted beer... Regards, IB
