That's what i thought, but no squirrels in the area, caught a mouse doing a fast exit when i watered the strawberries, there must be 40+ berries collected and rotting! I don't mind a few nibbles, but just collecting is a waste!

I have a bed of strawberries,  for the second year now i have found a collection of carefully collected berries hidden  in the raised bed. Mice are the culprit, they don't eat them, but collect and hide them, has anyone else found the same happening ? 

Help with my Viburnum

No changes around area, it was in full leaf and ready to bud!  The change was very dramatic. Think the others were still waiting to leaf.

Should I cut back branches, or feed  and wait? 

Do not expect it to flower this year, would be happy to just see a green leaf.

I am in Aberdeen, we did have a cold night with ground frost, but nothing else affected, theres a magnolia, japanese mapel, all ok and thriving. This one is just shrivelled. Found a photo in  flower.  The wind can funnel down the house.

Help with my Viburnum

All other plants  /shrubs healthy. Its a woody shrub, looks ok, still green underneath, but would have expected to see some attempt to grow back, leaves do look like might be a mold? But that might just be cold weather over last month. No sign of damaged on trunk .

About a month ago I had a shrub 4ft   (In old money ) with  green leaves, ready to flower, 2days later whole shrub has shriveled.  No sign of life, but brances when broken show some green. Was hoping to see some show of life after a month,  but weather has been cool and  still looking very dead. 

Is this a "cut my loses " and take it out, or should i be patient, could life possibly be re kindled?

Any suggestions appreciated

Heavy rain all day here, but I have seen sparrows, bluetit, blackbirds, robin, pigeon, starling. 

Most of the birds stayed under cover.
