Garden Pests

Ada cut off a slice of the heavy fruit cake and poured two generous tablespoons of brandy over it, adding a dribble of honey and large dollop of stiff cream. As she opened the back door a large ginger Tom dashed inside and she tutted. "You'll have to wait," she said.

She climbed the three steps into the garden and placed the plate next to the two small graves disguised by deep red montbretia. She returned to the house to find Lucifer helping himself to a tin of salmon. "Pixie trap?" he said.

She nodded. "Yes. They've been farming their snails on my roses again."
