The manse garden
Originally uploaded by PhylB
After the first rainstorm in Denmark, I was amazed to see how many huge reddish brown slugs crawled out into the garden - 9 were sitting on the patio waiting for us and the grass was covered. Apparently these are not the normal Danish slugs that lived here till 4 or 5 years ago but a nastier Spanish species that are voraciously eating their way across Denmark, killing everything in sight. I don't think I've seen any of these rusty brown ones in Scotland yet. Let's hope they stay away from our vegetable patch back home.
