More Zoological Finds in our Yard

A light rain the other day didn’t stop our new ritual of standing under Townes’s favorite tree and touching the thorns while saying ‘Ouch.’ Afterwards, when examining some nearby flowers, we found a pack of huge snails. (A herd? A flock? A gaggle?)

For some reason, Townes couldn’t get a very close look!

It's actually a 'rout' of snails, apparently. I love weird collective nouns
