Droughts and flooded drains

The park at the end of our street flooded today. While taking the kids to have a look, they were attracted to the snails that were making the most of the rain.

They liked the snails so much I joked to my partner that it was as if they'd never seen them before. She pointed out that they hadn't seen many snails, through drought and where we've been living.

The kids brought home snails and gave them names and thought they were pets.
