L'escargot

The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is

Hunh??
Anyway, there have been a lot of snails about lately. Glistening snail trails through the garden every morning. Sadly they have polished off 6 out of 8 'Hugh's Huge' peas. They had to tiptoe through a crushed eggshell barrier to do it too. But I have a new weapon in the arsenal for naughty molluscs. Three actually. The hens. They don't suffer long.

Are you, perchance, a child of the 60s?
Now 'mad about saffron' will percolate all day.

Well I was a child in the 60's. Just a wanna-be hippie.
