Lovely picture.....try this for some war against the slugs!

I ABSOLUTELY HAD to mow the lawn today - well most of it but about 1/4 of it still has surface water.....how many slugs nestle in the blades of long grass? Hundreds - and most of them all chopped to pieces with by the Flymo....OMG...it made me feel so much better I tell you!!!!! The ones which were too small to be hit by the blades - KILLED by salt bath!!!!!!

Leighanne - I don't do manicures anymore either :)) Hand cream is about as much as it gets nowadays! I can't put gloves on in the garden - don't know why but it just doesn't feel right.
You have no idea of what I was saying to those slugs as I went over them again and again. Couldn't publish that here :)))
