One... Two... Three... Huh?





Mr. Snooty and I have had the busiest last week! There are two weddings coming up so we've had lots of parties to attend. We've also been playing a lot of golf since the weather has been so nice this year. However, we've been keeping tabs on Felicia The Fox and her growing pups on a daily basis.




Yes, my garden is shot to Hell. It's much more fun watching the FOUR Fox pups play out in my garden. That's right. I said four. For the first time, we believe we saw all of them. See if you can find them in the pictures.


YOU MUST CLICK ON THIS PICTURE to see the crouching tiger/fox just left of the little house and right of the terra cotta pot.

Yesterday Felicia had a look on her face that I recognized from my own days of motherhood. The look of total exhaustion that only a new mother can have. Judging by the way these little characters carry on, I can only imagine that she must be tired to the bone. They constantly chase each other around the garden and have torn up everything out there that could be destroyed. But, they are absolutely hilarious to watch.



However, Felicia is a fiercely protective mother, so we still only peek over the fence, which she doesn't seem to mind. One afternoon last week I went out to start the water in the garden and I apparently surprised Felicia when she was out with the pups, which seems to be most of the time now. She hissed/growled at me then came toward me, scaring the crapola out of me. I never knew I could run so fast.



So, I guess if I'm going to have a garden, then it's going to have to be a Fall garden… I think it's worth it. At least we have tomatoes, which we planted in the *Topsy Turvy* planters that we have hanging from the guesthouse roof. For now, this is far more entertaining...






Oh, and the Midnight Bed Rambler has been at it again.... More on this later.

The pups are so pretty! But you're right, your garden looks trashed!

So worth not having a garden. You are good people!

Daryl said...

You are SO right, these pix of the kits is a lot more entertaining than planting/gardening .... I wonder if Felicia was going to attack or just ask for parenting advice

Mental P Mama said...

4???? No wonder she is so tired! But I agree, totally worth the garden sacrifice....

Can't wait for the midnight rambler stories.

I am so happy that you both let the garden go to hell for the sake of the babies. What a sight to be seen.

Foxes are much better than a garden! A garden would just make you work - till, plant, hoe, weed, water, harvest, put up. Foxes are definitely better!

thanks!

These little babies would be fun to watch every day. Are you afraid they could get in your house? This would scare me. You can always work on the garden later when you have more time. Don't worry about it.

I would have ran to the next block had she growled at me.

I think it's so great that you have this little family sharing your space. I would definitely forgo a garden for the privilege of watching them grow and play!

Can't wait to hear about the midnight ramblings!

I finally see the 4 pups in that last photo. How neat!

Thanks for letting them take over your garden so everyone can enjoy them as well. Just so cute they are. Worth the not having the garden.

Garden shmarden. It's just more work and less golf. :o) Enjoy the pups. Our baby bunnies are about ready to leave their nest. I wish they would stay put where I know they are safe. I'm trying to get some good photos.

In the meantime, I won't let the mowers anywhere near the nest. I set up stakes and "CAUTION" tape around the nest. It looks lovely, but the bunnies are safe.

What better crop to grow in your garden? Late garden is better.
