There were 5 but only 3 went for a bounce!

I can't see any foxes but that's evening primrose you have growing through your patio.

Milliways Sat 08-Sep-12 21:07:33

But this is something we didn't want!

On my phone your title comes up "...playing on my tramp"

Obviously I don't really think you have a tramp but I did open the thread just in case...

Whow - snake!!! You had a snake in your garden?

Milliways Sat 08-Sep-12 21:18:38

grin Kellykettle!

Er, yes - was a 4' long beastie Oakmaiden. shock

grass snake?? whereabouts do you live if you don't mind me asking.

Tee2072 Sat 08-Sep-12 21:21:47

shock at the snake.

::waiting for the 'how can you not have a safety net on your trampoline' brigade::

I'm not sure what's fascinating me most, the foxes and reptiles, or the until now unknown entity that is pictures in posts!

How long has this been going on?

It's no wonder I'm so crap at Where's Wally, my observational skills are honed like a newly sharpened jelly.

Topknob - We live in Reading.

Never had a safety net for the trampoline. DS had an accident but it did not involve falling off! We went for a 14' beastie that tends to throw them into the middle. It's done really well, got it in 2000 so kids all grown up and it's only visitors children that really use it now

We have a whippet who looks a bit like a fox, and she likes to play on the trampoline too!

Milliways Sat 08-Sep-12 21:39:25

It's so funny to watch isn't it! Our old dog would not have been able to jump that high. When DH pondered the merits of sinking the trampoline into the ground I could just see the dog belting down the garden and suddenly being thrown over the back fence!

I have 2 young foxes that love my trampoline too... they have even nibbled the bottom toggle off so they can get through the net! They play on it quite often, and even like to snooze on it.

Milliways Sat 08-Sep-12 21:54:10

Aw Splishsplosh, that's great!

This family seem to have adopted our garden now, they are there every morning and sunbathe under the climbing frame (not tried the slide yet! grin )

Just wish they would clear up after themselves - getting rather a lot of droppings!

Apparently foxes can climb trees.

<interesting fact>

I had no idea we could put photos into posts now.

kellykettle Sun 09-Sep-12 09:14:31

Oh is there really a picture on the thread? I thought everyone was joking grin

I'm using the MN app, it will be a while before we see pics on it I suspect.

Foxes can jump 6 ft high fence panels smile

They may like to snooze on it as the black of the jump deck retains the heat. it gets lovely and warm. Er... allegedly.
