Any road. I didn't kill the caterpillar and it's free to help me trim the hedges. I have cut my Griselinia hedge 5 times this year. You know the definition of an hedge:
"Man's statement of arrogance against nature."
I once knew somebody who use to leave food out every night for a brown rat. He reckoned it was the same rat that visited every night. I often get A Robin perching on my garden spade or fork looking for worms, watching me like some old farmer who is thinking:
"He's not doing that right."
I'd like to think it's my late dad or one of my ancestor's watching over us. I hope there is a God with all this worry of war in Iraq, Gaza and the Ukraine.
Do you have any unusual creatures visiting your smallholding or vegetable plot?
It's been a great Summer here in Ireland.
