花泥棒 – Flower Thief


ある日突然、花が消えちゃうのって、ショックです。 – It’s quite shocking when you wake up one day, to see that flowers disappeared suddenly.

消える前のパンジー。綺麗に花が咲き始めて、これからっていう時でした。 – These were pansies before they disappeared.  They recently started blooming and would be even prettier from then on.

でも、初めてじゃないんです。理由もわかってます。常習犯のこのうさぎのせい。 -But I know why and how, because it wasn’t the first time.  This cottontail rabbit is the habitual thief.

網で庭には入れないようにしても、隅の網をググッと押しのけて入って来ちゃう。 – Even though the gate is carefully wrapped with wire, it comes in by pushing the bottom corner of the wire.

困ったことに、網は外に曲がらないから、外には出られないんだなぁー。 – Unfortunately, the flower thief can’t go out once it comes in because the wire won’t bend outward.

バンちゃんと一緒に庭中を追いかけてようやく追い出しました。網の隅も補強して、再び挑戦です。 – Banchan and I spent a while chasing it all over the backyard. Finally we got it to successfully leave.  We have reinforced the corner of the wire.  It’s like a war between the cottontail and us.

今度はデイジー。頑張れ! – Daisy, it’s your turn now.  Live well!
