Poor little mouse


My husband found this dead mouse in our shed yesterday. It must have climbed into a large paint bucket and been unable to escape.

After my exclamation of sympathy, he suggested I might want to photograph it for the blog, which I thought was a great idea (he knows me well)! One of the boys grabbed the camera and took a photo, then proceeded to make a little grave marker with a piece of wood and a permanent pen. If you click on the picture, you'll see the words better.

The mouse's little body is now interred underneath our forsythia bush, which is just coming into bloom.

How sad, he looked such a dear little mouse. He doesn't look like a house mouse, was he a wood or dormouse, I wonder? It was a very fitting tribute to bury him with a little grave marker. x

I don't know, but thankfully we've never had mice in our house, just in our sheds and compost. They like to hibernate in the compost - must be fairly warm.
