Morning all its been a very wet and dreary week here, and is set to continue for the rest of the week. So I have to put off getting things done in the garden for a little while longer. I did have a little visitor Sunday late afternoon well infact Wile-e spotted him. A baby hedgehog the first one I have seen here in the past 10 years. The rain drove me into the kitchen which overlooks the far distance Dartmoor. I made a lovely Lasagne my fairy cakes were’nt so good though.
This is the best I could do without scaring him off. Have a great Day where ever you are Open-mouthed

    We have those here in America too only we call them ground hogs. They get huge and are rather frightening looking to me. You got a good shot of this one. A fairy cake sounds good. Will you please tell us how you make those?

    I love frogs Dreamwalker I noticed some frog spawn up in the lake here the other day. The only problem there is the ducks eat them, so have taken some to the pond down the other side of the garden which is smaller. T o think only about 10 will survive out of thousands phew!

    I wonder if that’s the same hedgehog that visited Curiosity and me the other day, if so he must be quite tired.My frog spawn all died, don’t know why, it just disappeared, also the share I gave to a friend, but my son in laws ar turning into tadpoles.
