    The beautiful colours of the new foliage on one of my Red Robin made me do a double take today.

                  Some of our Spring colour in the flower beds
                  P1510233.JPG

                  P1510236.JPG

                  and we have lots of them starting to flower in our wild area

                  P1510258.JPG

                  The trouble we get down there is rabbits! :wallbanging: We like rabbits but not when they do wanton damage! They nip the flowers off the cowslips and just leave them on the ground. They don't even eat them :scratch:. They're just left like this :sad:
                  P1510256.JPG

                  They live under the neighbour's paving that comes up to our fence and the neighbour is now having to pull up the paving to try and get rid of them as the paving is becoming unsafe. I try to stop them going from our side and have buried wire in the flower bed (30ft of it) but they are now digging under it and bending it out of the way :rolleyespink:
                  P1510227.JPG

                  Someone else is now taking an interest :yikes:
