Not only does Zurich turn suddenly green in the Springtime, but flowers are everywhere.
Besides all this flora, there is fauna too. Birds sing, bugs flit, and since we are near the forest, an occasional fox wanders through our garden. There are also normal-sized snails and larger SnOUSes (Snails Of Unusual Size).
This kind of snail lives 5 years and hibernates during the winter by sealing off its shell. It’s also edible, and is what becomes escargot when cooked. But I let this little guy continue on his way and did not eat him.
