The sneezy fox

- Following on from my last post, I would much rather a flower fairy anyday....but, it seems we have an unwelcome visitor in our midst right now; twice this week our border has been dug up, with a poor little defenseless heather feeling the full brunt of the attack (it was fully uprooted!!). The likely culprit; a fox! :-< On the advice of a friend, we have now laced the border with pepper (!), in the hope that it will deter the naughty little fellow....I'll let you know if it works.

In the meantime, if anyone has any other suggestions or theories then they would be gladly welcomed! ;)


  1. Your fox illustration is cute and funny! I haven't had any experiences with a fox. I have seen a fox crossing the road while driving and a coyote once too. I hope the pepper help!

  2. Thanks! :) A coyote??? YIKES! Fingers crossed for the pepper... :)

  3. I love it! Lets hope the pepper works.... naughty little fox x

  4. Thanks! :) There's been another small attempt overnight, but it looks like they were put off a little bit; just a bit of scattered soil on the garden, but no uprooted heathers fortunately....hmmmmm - more pepper maybe??


Lovely to hear from you! :)
