Hedgehogs!!!!!

Following the safe return and hibernation of Tom, the carer who looked after him asked me to set a couple she had taken in as babes for the winter, free in the garden. I gave one to a neighbour.

Ours didn't stay long, we took the picture and he has gone. Hopefully he will mosey through the garden during the summer evenings. Tom is still with us, he was feeding with another large hog in the feeding station. X x x hugs x x

You certainly had us guessing there, Stella.  ;)

I could do with borrowing them from you for a while, they might get rid of the army of slugs that have invaded my garden; the wretched things have eaten all the echinaceas I was growing for Sue.  :angry2:

Apparently, there has been an abundance of slugs this year, due to weather last Summer and the Winter.  This of course causes problems with Lungworm should they be ingested to name just one problem.

 
I read this somewhere and have just Googled ... use Copper Strips.  The slimey creatures won't cross the line apparently ... worth a try anyway

We collected another male hog a couple of weeks ago. Unlike the others this one knows how to play the game. He was late hibernating and therefore late waking in the spring. He also was so disruptive for his carer that she had him in her lounge all winter long.
We have taken him in and he refuses to move from his cardboard box he has spent his hibernation in. He has dragged in so much straw I don't know how he gets himself in.
His latest trick is to get into the feeding station to wait for us to feed him. He is such a cheeky hog!! X x x hugs x x
