Now if you know me at all you will know straight away that the title of this post is not for real. Well this gorgeous little creature will not be ending up on our table for sure, even if he has been eating his way through all the shrubs in the garden area at the back of the house.
Him and his little friends have even been nibbling at my veggie garden at the front of the house, cheeky little things.
But to my mind a hungry animal is just that something that needs feeding, and if they are brave enough to risk coming this close to the house they really must be hungry, so although I don't encourage them too close to the house on purpose because we do have dogs, and Rosy can catch these lovely creatures if they get tangled up on their escape from the garden, I do give them five minutes nibbling time if I spot them out there, then I knock on the back door before I open it to let the dogs out, to give them a head start back to the woods.
Anyone visiting would think I'm daft, knocking on the door on the inside to go out into the garden!!
A final glance and then it was off for this handsome little chap, and for once no dogs on his tail as they were fast asleep in their beds after a frosty walk first thing this morning.
