Let Sleeping Hedgehogs Lie

Last November was the coldest in 17 years, yet this year November will go down as one of the warmest on record. As with this time last year the borders in front of the cottages are cut down, but in the warmth rather than the bitterly cold, see blog entry for the 25th November 'Bitterly Cold'.

As Callum and Ali worked their way down the border they came across a small pile of leaves, raking them they found a sleeping hedgehog already hibernating for the winter. Carefully putting the leaves back, adding a few more for luck, they leave him to his hibernation. The border was then mulched, a perfect black background for the snowdrops that will emerge early next year.
