Hog Bed and Breakfast

We've had another hog come to visit. Last month it was Phyllis the Groundhog who had arrived as part of her World Tour that Susanna Hill had organised. Yesterday it was quite a different little hog. Mr A was delighted.

"He's just what we need in the garden!" he said. "He'll eat all the slugs and snails before they can eat our hostas. Don't scare him off!"

So I went out and took his photograph...


...but I think he was a bit camera shy because he ran away. Sorry Mr A. Sorry hostas.


I may be some time... *last seen rummaging around in bushes looking for cute little hedgehog*



On Monday, 7th May I'll be joining the A to Z bloggers giving my feedback on the experience. Now let me see. What did I think of it? And while we're at it, what did YOU think of it?

  1. Tempt him back with cat food, and make sure there's a ramp in your garden pond - we nearly drowned a hedgehog years ago by building a pond without ramps.

  2. Hi Lizy, thanks for the comment. I suspect my fat cats would eat his cat food, even if it was put in a dish marked hedgehog so that's not an option. Fortunately we don't have a pond but next door does. Hmmm. Wonder if they have a ramp.

  3. Don't know a lot about critters, but can't say I blame them for being shy around humans.

  5. Oh he's lovely. We used to have a hedgehog in the garden I think the dogs must have scared him away.

  8. Oh, that hedgehog is adorable. I hope you can lure him back. As for the A-Z follow-up, I thought we were supposed to do that next Wednesday. Whenever it is, I reckon I'll throw my three cents' into the mix. (inflation)

  9. I love hedgehogs! That one is adorable! I hope he comes back. :)

    I have never done an A-Z challenge and I don't know if I will. I'm overwhelmed by you brave souls posting every day and can hardly keep up. I can't imagine the blog posts myself! :)

  10. What I just wrote makes no sense! Ignore me!! I think I meant to say "writing the blog posts myself." *Slinks back into the corner* :D

  11. We don't have hedgehogs here, but I've always thought they had some magic about them. I guess it was my early reading of Alice in Wonderland. Didn't the queen use hedgehogs as balls in the croquet game?

  14. A hedgehog would make a fine addition to your garden. We've got peafowl--a cock and two hens. I've noticed none of the little feathery visitors flick through the bark any more. I guess you have to give up smaller friends if you encourage the large ones.

  15. Hi there, thanks for stopping in and leaving a comment. I have never had any ads with my playlist and have been real happy with it. I enjoyed the A-Z and sort of miss it I think. Writing is easier when you are directed:)

  16. Oh how cute! I hope he comes back to enrich your garden and your hostas. I enjoyed the Challenge a lot this year. There's been so much great feedback about it. I think this was the best year yet overall.
