I had to shoot this photo upside down because
with all the rain and the nature of how Hellebore's
grow all the blossoms were head down looking at the
soil. As you can see the slugs have been having
a bit of a feast on this plant. After I took this photo
I went around the garden picking all the daffodils that
were face down and brought them into the house.
As I put them into a vase a lot of slugs emerged from
inside the flowers...eeeew how disgusting. They were quickly
dispatched. I took no prisoners. Obviously our chickens are not
doing their job-or else there are just a lot of slugs this year.
