A hedgehog! That’s not something you see in my part of the world, although my local botanic garden included one in a photo advertising an evening wildlife walk through the garden, leading to a lot of rolled eyes about the limited knowledge of the garden’s social media staff. Apparently, pictures of skunks, coyotes or raccoons didn’t fit the garden staff’s image of approachable wildlife.
What a delight!

We were so pleased to see it – and outside our front door too, as if just to let us know he was still around. We used to see them regularly in the garden, but it must be at least a year. Interestingly, I saw one in the garden the next day too, although it may have been the same one as it was a similar juvenile size
I do hope he stays with you! We don’t have hedgehogs here in North Carolina, but we have groundhogs! They are not nearly as endearing.
Me too. Must ask our neighbour if he has had a visit too, as he used to see a family of them when he got up during the night
Just would enjoy having one in my garden …but ….no chance.
Yes, at least they are an asset in a garden , unlike some of the creatures you may have…
How fabulous. I haven’t seen one in at least 20 years.
We were thrilled Jude, as it must be a year since we have seen any…
Lucky you! 🙂
Indeed we are – they used to be regular visitors but after encountering 2 dead ones a year or so ago we hadn’t seen any…
What a fun visitor. 🙂
It’s so lovely to know they are about!
What a wonderful find! We had wild hedgehogs around when we were kids. Here in Australia the nearest to a hedgehog we get is an Echidna!
Aren’t all hedgehogs wild?! Had to look up echidnas – they are a bit bigger than hedhogs, are they?
Yes, Echidnas are much bigger than hedgehogs.
