Sunday Stills – Summer Bugs in winter?

Bugs are in short supply here in winter but who knows what might lurking in the weeds of my winter garden – or is it back to the archives I go…!


So where do the bugs go in winter. I found this exoskeleton still clinging to the tree trunk long after its inhabitant had moved on.

There must be some spiders somewhere.

I even looked in the compost bin hoping to find some slaters or at least an earthworm or two. No luck there.


Then I remembered – those archives and those snails. I have never noticed snails on trees  before.  You can just see the damage cause by their chewing, I guess they did it carefully so they didn’t chew off their escape route.
