DON'T MIND ME ….. MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME ……….



I was looking out at the garden from the conservatory around mid-morning yesterday and who should I see but Mr. Fox !!



He had a little sit down on the lawn for quite a while, stared at me as if I was the intruder …..



….. had a roam around, sniffing everything as he went …..



….. and then, returned to his spot in the sun, put his head down and went to sleep !!!!





I know that the fox isn't every ones favourite garden visitor { especially if you keep chickens like John } but, I do still get a bit of a thrill when they come and visit our garden …… goodness knows what I'd be like if I went on safari !!!!!!

I can remember following the Hunt on Boxing Day as a child ……. now that subject opens up a can of worms. I can see both sides of the argument myself.

  1. That is so cool! I love when wildlife wanders into our yard. We used to have 2 fawns that would come every morning to eat the clover a few years ago. Loved seeing them!

      Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in TEXAS,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly email this wonderful man {bravespellcaster@gmail.com},i f you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Brave for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, Thanks..

  5. Dear Jackie,
    these photos you took are great! He must have felt very sure of himself and safe in your garden. (I believe that animals can enjoy beauty and have a feeling for aesthetics - saw many examples that were not to be explained by "need for food") - and your garden is beautiful.

  6. Oh my that would scare me. He looks like a healthy fox too. We have a snake in our rose garden right now and even though it is the good kind of snake, it scares me! We get coyotes in the field behind our garden gate but they never have come in. Last summer we watched a family with three pups walk through the field at a good distance. It was a beautiful site.

  7. Wow...that must have been a very special moment. Such a privilege, having nature and wildlife near your home! Have a good week, Anita xo

  8. I'm always fascinated to see a fox in the garden, but I agree they are getting very brave. Often observing us as we observe them.
    Hope you have a lovely week,
    Liz x

  9. Oh Jackie, what an exquisite guest! I'm with you, I would have been fluttering (and would forget to make pictures)
    I wish you a sunny week

  10. Quite the garden guest . . . nice to view from the window . . . not so if he would suddenly appear while out there gardening . . .
    I liked the Shakespeare . . .

  11. They are beautiful animals. But I'd love to have chickens, ducks or geese, and dare not as we have foxes here too. They're also out in broad daylight.

  12. I always get very over excited when I see a fox in the city!!

  13. Jackie, I have a red fox also. They are very close to dogs, more-so than wolves.
    Funny we had chickens on the farm, I never saw a fox. Here on the coast he visits now and then.
    The wedding was beautiful. New York is a culture shock. Oh, Renee didn't want to go after I bought the tickets, so I somehow got a Delta Lady who changed the Name to my friend, she is younger than Renee and I am lucky she went as I fell at the airport. At 78 this is my last wedding.
    Renee has met a Guy, he has a sail boat. Divorced twice. It may get serious. The way she acts
    I think she really likes him. Well that's the news on the home front. Big hug to you Beautiful..

  14. A cute little visitor is he and laying down for a nap ~ imagine. Anyone with pets may be nervous of this ~ it he tame at all Jackie? Maybe he has been around a lot of people in the past and that is why he feels so comfortable just hanging out in the yard.

  17. I see you have some SPAM (above).

    I've only hunted once. I 'followed' the Old Surrey and Burstow when I was quite young (riding beside Jimmy Edwards). It obviously didn't appeal, as I never rode out again. Now I'd rather watch the foxes... as long as they don't come too close to the chicken run.

  18. The fox knows a relaxing environment when he sees one. I wouldn't mind stretching out in your garden either! I hope life is treating you well, dear Jackie...3 more weeks and I am heading your way! xxoo

  19. Jackie your blog is a slice of heaven....I spend way too much time here looking at your amazing images. We don't like foxes in Australia...they consider them to be vermin...quite sad really as they look amazing...although I do have chickens !!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh! Yes. Yes so would enjoy a visit from Mr. fox in our yard, we get wild bunnies, quail and there babies and coyotes, from time to time and I adore the visits. Yours is so sweet pictured here, and I am sure even a bit of a fright at the same time, nature has a way with completing us :)

    A wonderful garden share, and I just love that rusted aged IRON GATE of yours :)

  21. December of 2012 we had a just born baby lamb delivered in the field in front of the farmhouse before we could get her to the barn. When the Sheepfarmer came in for lunch he pointed out the blessed event and said "We must move them both into the barn after lunch" within a few moments I looked up from my soup and out the kitchen window to see a fox carrying off the newborn and the mama frantically bellowing and trying to find her baby. We immediately ran out but found nothing. The memory is etched in mind, forever. I don't like foxes that steal baby lambs and unfortunately it is not a rare event :-(

  22. I really think it's a treat to see a red fox in the wild. They are very smart.
    Where did you ever get the Keys that say HOME???? yvonne

  23. How in the world did I miss this beautiful post??? Your garden visitor is a real royal looking fellow Jackie. What a handsome creature he is!
    I hope you are having a great start to your week dearest. It's raining here today and it never seems to rain here this time of year so I am loving it!
    sending big hugs your way...

  24. Hi Jackie,

    So special to have a fox in your garden! I always hope to see one when I am in England, but so far only one (and very very far away)!!!

    Just read your comment. Such a coincidence! What a beautiful house your friend lives is. It's the sort of house I dream off :-) The whole village of Ebrington is picturesque, with the old houses, rambling roses and the pub. We planned to have lunch there, but ended up having tea and a sandwhich at Hidcote.

    The girls and I will spend a week near Tunbridge Wells soon. You don't have friends who's house I can photograph living there, do you :-)?

    Enjoy the rest of the week!
