Snail Aerobics

By Joeblowfromoz
Well, we thought we wouldn't be here today, but plans have changed, as the weather is just too horrible.. HRH has bought the rain with her to Perth, and we decided to stay put, until the weather improves.

This is just something for a bit of fun. With all the rain, the snails are in their element, and I followed this snail around the other day in the rain and came up with this. Hope it gives you a bit of joy.

Thanks for all the votes and comments on Wedge Tail Eagle and previous comments.

A very well compiled triptych and with the fourth snail extreme right acting as an interested assessor of your work, Jo.
We watch HRH's progress on the news......she seems to be having a warm welcome in all cities visited so far.

I had thought of that, and might work on it - not sure how to go about it though.
