I have learned to keep my leather gardening gloves handy. Not for me a bit of late night weeding, nor do I plant by the moonlight as some gardeners recommend.
No, I need the gloves to frequently carry a hedgehog from our dog-proofed but seemingly not hog-proofed rear garden to the safety of the front garden. Safely away from the dogs who delight in the company of their new prickly friend, rolling him around, picking him up (I'm not kidding) and generally keeping him (or her, who knows) from finding that special place to nap this Winter.
Maybe all dogs do this? Do they also chew slugs as though they were licorice every time it rains? Crunch snails as though they were ferrero rocher? Suck frogs like jelly babies?
I'll spare you those photos.

Actually this shot was fairly simple. After the inevitable cheesy grin shot, then asking a couple of times to move her hand out of the way, and then finally suggesting she didn't look at the camera, the willing subject gave us this peach.
She shall remain anonymous for the purpose of the blog as readers will know I don't like to give too much away. But thanks to her Mum & Dad for letting me post it.

Blogging should be fun. It can be political, meaningful, useful, informative, artistic, whimsical, humorous or serious but the author needs to feel a drive to keep on posting. Cherry over at Pixie Wood has been feeling guilty for not replying to people's comments - silly girl! I've felt a bit bad leaving long gaps between postings (thank you Smoo for nagging me). I am also quite self-conscious sometimes and spend forever trying to write the right thing. Then it's not fun and so I leave it for a day or so.
Anyway, today, you got pigs AGAIN. I make no apologies. These dudes are so photogenic (to me anyway). If you could see their expressions when they hear the shutter whirr...wos that?! Did you hear it too?! Makes me die. And then I sit there, for far too long in the mud and take 20 more pics.
Anyway, have been thinking of a few ways to pep up the blog, returning to some original themes. Perhaps you have some ideas/requests?
