When I inspected my rockery this morning I was confounded to discover that the sea shells that I had gathered from the beach in Nerja and carefully ‘planted’ next to some baby sempervivum had disappeared. Not only that but the sempervivum heads had also been pulled up and tossed across the grass.
What dastardly act had occurred while my back was turned? What mischievous creature had danced upon my folly and caused such mayhem? I can only assume that the white shells and stones had shone like a beacon under last night’s full moon and attracted some cat, dog, mouse or other nocturnal creature.
I have replanted the sempervivum but it remains to be seen whether they will survive. But where the heck have the shells gone?
