Hell hath no fury*

True to his word the Mole Man was here first thing this morning.

9 traps set, he'll be back in a couple of days to dig up the body(s). 









Always misquoted, the line should really be:

"Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, 
Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned," 
William Congreve, The Mourning Bride (1697) 
Act III, Scene VIII.

  1. I must say they you are very confident of his ability! I'd say the jury was still out until the evidence is in the bag (trap)!

    1. Hazel, it's either optimism or a positive mental attitude {grin}. No point employing the guy if I don't believe he can deliver (and I think one of the traps has already sprung ... but I'm not going to dig it up to find out).

  2. I hope you don't get more, via the surrounding fields. I've often wondered if those sonic things are any good at keeping them away.

    1. Mrs Rusty, I hope so too. We have fields on two sides and open land on a third. I don't know if the sonic things would work and in a garden this large we'd need so many . . .

  3. Oh dear - I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to watch when he came back.

  4. Keeping fingers crossed he gets them. Daisy being there doesn't keep them away?

    1. Another occasion where Daisy is no use. I suspect if one scurried across the lawn she'd pounce on it but the chances of that happening are pretty remote :{

  5. I'm sorry your garden is under attack. Let's hope you'll get them all in one fell swoop.

    1. Thanks FFG, it could be worse - at least it's not deer or rabbits.
