Defender of the Figs

I have installed security surveillance on my fig tree that succeeded in deterring marauding  birds and beasts!  The sight of a fig ripening on my trees to the point of bursting is rare until  the Black Leopard started sitting guard.



He is a soft toy that I found in the middle of the street some years ago and left at the front of my property for its owner to collect but no one did.  Since then its gleaming black fur has greyed and passers by who once thought he was real now think he was made of stone.


I decided to prop him up on the tree to scare the fig thieves and so far it’s worked!
