Today I was hit by the destructive and vunerability of life. As I soundly slept in my bed my beautiful tomato plants were being annilated by a swarm of slugs. The locust style way they sweep in while no one is looking and devour everything in their sight is quite frightening. Their slime glistening in the morning light, a horrific clue as to what happened. Their destructive path leaves behind a sad case of flattened leaves and empty space where once beautiful green shoots used to reign.
And I was so proud of my first attempt at gardening.
I will not let the slugs defeat me…..
