The other day I returned from the auction with two large deer that I'd got for my Mother in Law. It seemed like a reasonable swap.
Seriously (!) I'd been commissioned to purchase this small deer duo by Big Nana who is keen to place them in her rockery with Lucy the bronze rabbit possibly as some sort of Gormley style display. I'd been unsuccessful on the previous two occasions these items had appeared in the auction and had dropped out of the intense bidding war shaking my head and making my well aired "too dear" joke to mass hysterical laughter but this time time I stuck to my guns and secured them for less doe. As I carried them out someone said "Look at that bloke with two old deers". It was hilarious.
When the weather is fine we will deliver these beauties by herding them up the M6. However, there is a small problem regarding our temporary storage of the two animals in the form of a small Tibetan who has taken on the mantle of "Head of Security" around here. They must look as frightening as this did to Lily at the weekend.
Anyway, here is Holly's first garden encounter:
