    Oh, what a shame Cathy! Any idea who the culprit was?

  2. Brian Skeys says:

    Oh dear, pesky slugs 🐌 I guess!

  3. rickii says:

    I hope he didn’t go on to feast on all the others.

  4. Oh bother that is so annoying

    • Cathy says:

      Bother indeed! I could say, of course, that there are plenty more to come (snowdrops, not slugs!!) but that isn’t the point as this would have been the first to open…

  5. Chloris says:

    Oh Cathy, I share your pain. Slugs, bloody slugs. This calls for drastic measures, get out the metaldehyde.

    • Cathy says:

      Gosh Chloris – I am visualising you like Britannia or perhaps Boudicca, standing up to the the slugs b***** slugs, but brandishing slug pellets instead of a trident or Boudicca’s weapon of choice 🙂

  6. Who has been eating your snowdrops??Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  7. Uh, oh. It’s worryingly early for slugs and snails isn’t it? Traditionally they are said to start to be a nuisance from Valentine’s Day onwards ….

    • Cathy says:

      They are still around though – the Golfer moved a trough yesterday and found a whole colony underneath it. I am hoping the birds had them for breakfast before they realised what had happened to them!

    How frustrating!

    Oh nooooo! Wordless indeed!
    It feels out of place on this rather tragic post, but I have actually posted this week’s vase at last, so I will add the link here rather than making you hunt back to an earlier post – I am clearly out of kilter just at present! I thought your amaryllis was lovely, and I hope to have a stem to experiment with soon. This Christmas’s bulb looks like having not one or two, but three! bloom stalks. Meantime, here is this week’s vase: https://www.smallsunnygarden.com/2016/12/21/a-miscellany-of-monday-and-other-days/

    • Cathy says:

      Oh how exciting to have so many flowering stems to look forward to – hope they all make it! After Monday’s blitz on vase posts I have been busy with other things too so am catching up on later comments anyway!

  10. Sam says:

    We need a long spell of very cold weather to kill off the blighters! Sorry about your snowdrop…

    • Cathy says:

      I do remind them every so often of what they can and cannot eat – and snowdrops were certainly not on their permitted list…

  11. Christina says:

    Oh Noooo. How sad.
