A sad day!


Unfortunately, our garden was vandelised on Saturday night.

The trellacing was ripped off, teepees overturned, plants uprooted, the "big bed" trampled and our scarecrow damaged and hung from a street sign.

A police report was completed and the Redfern Police have willingly agreed to increase patrols of this area.

While this is very disappointing, we are lucky that this is the 1st real incident since we started the garden nearly 12 months ago.

Yep I agree, positive thinking says we're lucky Mr Scarecrow didn't get it sooner...

So is he sleeping it off? Do we still need to name him? Hangman anyone? :)

Great post and thanks for the updates. Shame about the scare crow, I'm often shooing undesirables away from the garden but it's such a high traffic spot..hopefully the police will actually swing past more often, they should check a few times a day as it's a liquor free zone that always has boozers in it...

Sorry to hear guys, this is certainly something in everyones mind, touch wood its isolated and not widespread.
