Came home from work Wed tea-time & had a wander into the garden (whilst a cup of tea was being made for me!) – noticed ‘something’ had been messing about with a newly planted container which had pansies in and a small little statue. It’s our old hot water tank and had been used for beans during the summer &, when I oiked those out, I moved it where we could see it from the kitchen window.
Basically, I registered the fact that the statue was lying on it’s side, 2 of the pansies were now resting on their sides and a lot of the soil had been heaped up into a corner. I bravely ventured closer thinking ‘that flippin’ Squirrel!’ then saw two ‘things’ sticking up through the soil – when I pulled it up it turned out to be two fingers followed by the rest of a well chewed mans gardening glove!!
Wish I’d taken a photo but we were both a bit ‘spooked’ and Stephen quicklly threw the glove into the bin (the brown recycling one of course) – we’ve since decided that it was one of the foxes simply because we can’t come up with a better solution (& we know that foxes do take articles of clothing).
Oh, and the container is looking decidedly lop-sided because the 2 pansies are def. dead and I haven’t been able to replace them yet.
