Nature watching

Last night - about 10 o'clock - Euan and I were sitting on the bench against the back wall of the greenhouse watching the sun set and enjoying a glass of wine, when a hare lolloped along the main grass path and sat about 20 feet away from us munching the grass.
It knew we were there but ignored us, Jasmine knew it was there but ignored it (being too intent in mastering the new trick of balancing on top of a large roll of capillary matting which presently cluttering up the lawn). After ten minutes or so the hare headed off for a tour of the garden, carefully keeping to the paths, and then back into the field - half an hour later it was back for another tour - eating grass rather than flowers thankfully.
What a privilege.
