    Thanks so much for posting about Teacher Kylene‚Äôs celebration. It was amazing to see how many children and parents she has inspired over the years!

    And also, those adorable striped snails are an invasive species and do their very best to nudge out other PNW species and put big holes in all your flowers and veggies. I squash them when I find them. And they aren’t lured to their deaths like a taste for “beer on a jar lid” either!

    Thank you for that info, Jennifer. Have not yet seen this species of snail and appreciate being alerted. Am saddened to know there is yet another one competing for our already-stressed native plant and animal resources.

Sorry, comment time is over.
