Fairies have made a teeny wee rope swing in my cucumber plant (pics)

We have ants in the greenhouse- maybe they made the swing to attract aphid fairies!

Flymetothetoon aha they are cucumbers. This will be the perfect excuse when DD doesn't find a swing tomorrow 😀

@AnneOfCleavage we were gifted the plants and told they were small cucumbers ( waiting for them to lose their spines) no idea that cucumbers had spines when young.
Also didn't know that cucumbers attracted fairies 😍

Flymetothetoon that looks like a courgette plant. Please can I ask if you're getting lots of courgettes? We have two enormous plants with tons of yellow flowers and have had only two mini courgettes and that was 2 weeks back but nothing since and nothing is growing out the flowers 🙁 Can't believe I only planted two plants out now. Last year we were inundated and they took over the patch hence being reticent this year. Sorry to derail but thought I'd ask.

I adore the fairy swing. Called DD down to show her and she loved it too and will check our courgettes tomorrow for fairy swings. I feel she may be disappointed.

That is so cute! You'll have to set up a camera to see if you can catch them playing wink

That is so lovely! They've chosen to live in your garden.

You're going to have to set up a time lapse camera now to catch the fairies using it.

They’ve actually made a little swing. I’m dead from cuteness
