There was a bit of a melancholy feeling on The Hill these past few days.
We decided that it was time to disassemble Paddy’s enclosure. The reality is that we probably will never have the honor and privilege of raising another baby beaver… it’s just not something that happens on a regular basis, a once in a lifetime experience.

So, down came the fencing and after a few discussions about what we should do, we decided to make a memorial garden for her.
She is buried here underneath her crabapple tree.
We did decide to go ahead and leave her pond in the ground… just in case!
I’ll post more photos as planting progresses.
