Thanks Ang,there seems to be an awful lot of Hare products around.I have a friend living in the Dorset countryside. She opens her kitchen door and the Hares just wander in! Today I've been fighting off the young squirrels...little devils as soon as my back was turned they were digging into the soil to find the newly planted tulip bulbs....have laid chicken wire this pm + I may spread some chilli flakes.

Lovely piece. I love hares too. I looked after a leveret a very long time ago. I worked at greenhouses and they grew roses chrysanths and carnations. Long grass grew between the glasshouses and it was cut but a baby leveret was left, so the person bought the baby to me. I took it home, kept it in the spare room, fed it on special milk. I didn't handle it only to feed it. Got it on to green foods. When it was able to look after itself I took it back to the field next to the glasshouses and let it go. It used to try attacking Gerry if he came into the room. It was the best I could do for it.

It was a long time ago and can't remember but it wasn't cow's milk.

I can't imagine how lovely it must be to have hares trust you as they do your friend, Meadow. Those 'tree rats' can be a real pain. We bought some mole scarers and they (fingers crossed) seem to encouraged our pests to move on.... probably to the neighbours!

Always share,Ang ha ha!!! Went out this morning to inspect the border,all seems to be undisturbed. Next year I will plant tulip bulbs later in November. By then the squirrels aren't so active.
