Beauty of the earth...

I made it outside again today, as far as the grass garden.  Here are a few of the beauties...the first is a striped snail.  I don't know if it's native or not, but I've always thought it was beautiful, and it doesn't seem to damage the native plants enough to worry about.   The lavender flower's an obedient plant--they like wetter years better, but we still have a lot of them in the dampest part of the grass garden.  And the bird's a blue jay, of course.  Ours are skittish, so this is the best picture I've ever gotten of one.
