Why we'll always remember the night we tickled slugs with lettuce...

Last night we went to bed but couldn't sleep, so we decided to get up and go out exploring! At midnight we got our coats and sandals on, grabbed a torch and went out into the back garden. As it had been raining all day we were greeted by a whole host of snails and slugs. Brilliant! We went back inside to get lettuce to feed them ;o)

The stars were out 'en mass', it really was a beautiful night. The wind was rustling the leaves but apart from that it was blissfully silent. Well, apart from our peals of laughter that were probably inappropriately loud for that time of the night, LOL! We had a whale of a time attempting to feed the snails (and avoid treading on them!) and finding HUGE yellowy-white slugs. Eugh! We tickled them with lettuce to watch them recoil. This appeared to be beyond hilarious at gone midnight to Romy and me ;o)))

The quote of the night has to go to Romy with "Is that another slug over there? Oh no, it's just a bird poo." More hysterics!

When we came in we hugged each other, grinning from ear to ear and agreed that we'd always remember the night we went out to tickle slugs with lettuce.

Hmm - the mad side of me is chortling in glee at such an idea.

The gardener, however, is somewhat perturbed that you didn't take a large bucket of salt water out with you. ;)
