After a mammoth session repotting aquilegias for Mr. Fothergill I collapsed into my basket chair which is by the back gate and my new fox came through the gateway and trotted past me, inches away. He was not bothered and I had a good look as he trotted up the garden path - very dark brown, young and very healthy with no sign of mange, quite a handsome chappie. I do not know whether he is resident here or in a neighbour's garden but he does have a regular outing from next door through my hedge , up my drive, then up my garden. But the rate he trots I will not be able to follow him quick enough to see where he goes.
