Living in the country we naturally have rats about ~ but this particular one was a bit cheeky ~ it had invaded the bird table and was having a feast hanging on the peanut holder ~ Sammy was outside playing ~ and happened to notice Ratty and approached the bird feeder ~
Normally they would run away but this one was determined it was going to finish it's lunch before it departed ~ and Sammy was nearly on top of it before it decided it was time to leave ~ He honestly thought he would be able to capture it ~ Goodness knows what he planned on doing with it ~ was he planning on keeping for a pet I wonder !!
Sammy has got over his Appendix Operation well but is not allowed to play football yet ~ but as the Season has finished it isn't so hard on him now~ he loves his football
Ratty came in from next door and our neighbour Roy is going to deal with it ~ meantime we have blocked it's entrace hole into our garden ~
Lyn went to the garden centre a couple of weeks ago and came home armed with all her new packets of seeds ~ Lettuce ~ Peppers ~ Chilli ~ and Melon ~ she thought she would give Melon a go ~ so planted the seeds in the propagator and was pleasantly surprised to see 7 of the seeds had grown ~
Sunday when she went to water them ~ all that was left were 7 green little sticks ~ sticking up out of the soil and there sitting amongst them was a snail looking very sated indeed ~ she had to laugh but removed the snail to the top of the garden ~ where she presumes in a couple of more weeks it would have made it's way back to the greenhouse to feast on the new Melon seeds about to be planted ~
