Spot the snail

Snails get everywhere it seems, including onto the grave of well-known plant hunters and gardeners John Tradescant Senior and John Tradescant Junior. I spotted this snail sliming along on the Tradescant family tomb, which is at the Garden Museum in London.

It’s a brilliant place to visit if you are a gardening fan. There are lots of interesting things to see including a collection of gardening walking sticks designed for gentlemen gardeners who liked to do a spot of gardening while roaming around their country estates. Maybe I should get one for Dan. However, my favourite exhibit was a tin of Slug Death, some kind of toxic powder that promised to obliterate all slugs. Not that I would use it, unlike Dan.

I spent far too much money in the museum shop on gardening-related items that I do not need including some soap for “weary gardeners” and a new allotment journal. So far I have recorded that I have planted some potatoes.
