slugs



After the weekend's rain broke our long drought the Slugs of June were out in force on Cougar Mountain. These are two of a number of leopard slugs sited. There were so many brown ones I thought I could skate on their backs all the way to Ballpark Meadow. But I carefully avoided them. Even if they are responsible for munching their way through my recently-seeded flower garden
Photo-click if you dare!

Maybe we can get PETA up in arms against Newport Hills Park's incipient astroturf on the slug inhospitability factor

I'm surprised you didn't gather them up for a big slug-feast. Organic! Local!
