Yeah Chicky, that Box disease is very annoying, I hope its not too painful on your plot. I have six Box balls in total and crossing my fingers I don't get the same business here.
It's mild here too, already been out clearing away a pile of branches from summer pruning that I never got round to at the time. I didn't want to encourage bees to nest there this year since I'm planning to build a raised bed on that spot but I don't mind them choosing anywhere under my deliberate log piles. My little Flynn was happy to help remove and chew any Flynn sized sticks, he's also been practicing his skills in the *come when called department* and got 100% score. Such a good little boy, he absolutely loves rummaging around in my borders I just wish he wasn't so camouflaged on occasions!
I'll be going out in a bit again to patch up a Flynn sized hole underneath the fence we share with neighbours. Our ground is higher than theirs and dips a bit in one panel which he hasn't yet discovered but I must do it since next door own two very large dogs and may not welcome an intruder.
The only other place to Flynn proof is behind the shed which he could fit very nicely and although he's quite safe and able to get out, I'd rather not give him hiding places if I can help it
