Oh dear what can the matter be?
Turning into my drive I couldn’t believe my eyes…..my Aucuba had turned dark brown…..
but not quite all over
What can have caused this dreadful devastation?……..
…….my mind goes back 2 years to similar devastation wrought upon the next 2 shrubs along the drive. Thuja and a Euonymous both had large brown adjoining areas suddenly appear.
I asked advice from the wise folk of GOY:
“maybe it’s cat pee” came an answer
“oooooh NO” said I “not unless the cat is at least 2’6” tall and has a very big bladder"
Back came the suggestion
“maybe it’s the work of The Great British Big Bladdered Lion, commonly known as the GBBBL”
Now such a beast has never been sighted hereabouts so I conclude on the balance of probability that it’s the work of that other GBBBL suggested by Terratoonie, The Great Berkshire Bush Burning Lorry. This had indeed visited our drive on both occasions to deliver hard landscaping materials.
So the moral of this sorry tale fellow Goyers is never to let the GBBBL on to your property if you have bushes along your drive.
