We don't have any flowers growing in our backyard. There are some sort of ground cover daisies in the front, on the bank, but nothing to speak about in the backyard.
Imagine my surprise this morning to find about eight or nine of these:
I can't tell if they've been cut, but it sure doesn't look like they've been broken off. It looks more like a cut than a tear.
Because of the fence modification that keeps the cats in, tossing things over the fence would be pretty hard to do.
Especially to where the flowers were. They were strewn from the area in front of the first avocado tree, up to about where the cat is. No way they were thrown there.
We have absolutely how they got to where they were. A mystery. I was thinking maybe birds, but I can't see one bird carrying that many flowers at once.
The cats weren't acting strangely, like they would if an intruder animal had been in the yard. And even if there had been an opossum or a raccoon, why would they be carrying a bouquet of flowers?
