Strange but true!


My friend and her husband live in France and England throughout the year and I use her greenhouse. We share the produce. The greenhouse is surrounded with a fenced off garden area which used to be used for vegetables but which now is full of flowers which seed themselves every year. Something strange has happened to the love-in-a-mist which looks as though someone has taken a pair of garden shears to it and snipped off a lot of stems. I thought it was birds, but him indoors says it might be rabbits. We cannot find where they are getting through the fencing which is supposed to be rabbit proof. Perhaps they are good at high jump! When opening the door to the greenhouse I have noticed a beautiful perfume which I have narrowed down to the cucumber flowers, its not the peppers or the tomatoes. What a lovely delicate perfume. Strange but true. I have found the culprit for the love-in-a-mist – a baby bunny caught in the act!!

They would have to be very large as the plants are about 4 ft high and been chopped in the middle.
