Above you can see that as many live tulips that had to be thrown back, there were that many empty ones. Those pear whelks are for my flower pots out on the lanai.
Above, I’ve put down a quarter to show the size of the lone true tulip I found.
Above: Some of the olives are still wonderfully shiny. I was happy to have gotten the two crab carapaces home intact, as they tend to be a bit on the fragile side, in my experience. The alphabet cone is sort of weirdly shaped; has a bulge in one side. As you can see, I found mac n cheese, and you know what that means – it was a good shelling day! Note the tiny, nearly translucent natica near the two little mac n cheese.
Again with the quarter, to show the size of the nutmges and the moon snails. The build-me-up-buttercup was picked up for the express purpose of putting that song into Gary’s head when he sees this. You’re welcome! :-p
