The French have a phrase which goes something like, "Don't sell the bear skin before killing the bear.".... I know the saying better as "Don't count your chickens before they hatch"
I seem to have inadvertently sold the bear skin before the eggs hatched!
A few weeks ago, I posted on here about my success at getting some bamboo to strike after nearly three years of trying.
Well, the other day, whilst checking my pots and things I discovered that the bamboo shoots had been completely vandalised! Something had eaten all of them. I wasn't aware that pandas were a problem in this part of France, but what else could be causing such a problem.
Whilst wondering to whom I should report this extraordinary panda presence, I received an email from my friend Michael with these lovely photo's which I think might signal the source of my problem. He took these photos of a deer and it's fawn in my neighbour's garden. I hope you enjoy the photos, just as much as the deer apparently enjoyed my bamboo. Many thanks to Michael for sharing them.
