Purple poop !


By nanjo


The Elder trees are laden with fruit over the wall and the pigeons visit every eve to gorge on them. Quite a lot of gymnastics go on to reach the fruit at the tips of the branches. Of course as we all know the only downside is the ‘purple poop’ that gets deposited on the garden furniture …….

I know exactly what you mean! We have loads of all of it, the elder trees, the pigeons and of course the purple poop. The last helps to spread the elder trees which pop up everywhere and if you don't catch them early they put down very tenacious roots.
