I was doing a gardening job recently, and was taking out the worst affected leaves of the mollusc-munched Liriope muscari so it didn’t look so bedraggled. Lurking in the depths of these plants, unsurprisingly, were loads of Cornu aspersum (syn. Helix aspersa, the Garden Snail). I’m used to seeing them in various shades of brown – fawn, dun, bronze-ish, as well as the occasional weather-battered, bleached-looking specimens. But I’ve never seen this type of snail in lemony tints!
