Tree jewels

There are so many beautiful, strange things waiting to be noticed if you pay attention.

I spotted this little wagon train of snails hitched up on the back of a tree recently. I loved the patterns on the shells, and how well the colour complimented the thick, scaly bark of the tree.

It was bitterly cold – my fingers were numb from holding up the camera and taking pictures throughout my walk – and the snails were locked up tight in their houses. Although, they could have been out.

I didn’t knock to inquire.
