Dear old bambi paid a couple of visits to the garden before Christmas. The little critters must have been starving as they annihilated everything with a shred of greenery left and even managed to pull half the pansies out the soil. Barbecued venison burgers were tickling my fancy at that point ;-) eaten pansies

After I had carefully replanted and bought replacements twice I gave up the unequal struggle and left bambi to it. But amazingly a couple of these little pansies actually managed to regrow. Clearly showing the British bulldog spirit :-)

I reckon that’s 30 all now in the game of pansies vs bambi……
