Hedgehogs.



That Monday morning feeling. Sophie's face says it all.


It was a PON party night. Around eleven a family of hedgehogs wandered through the orchard. Bob howled and pawed at the door. Angus went in search of his thick leather gardening gloves. The hedgehogs were picked up and safely carried into the field by the stream. The PONs 'helped'.

Hedgehogs must be really malodorous if sleeping PONs can smell them from a hundred yards away.

This was played as the theme tune on the Radio France breakfast programme this morning :

  7. I'm thinking 11:00 p.m. rather than 11 hedgehogs, but I wasn't there . . .

  8. I find it amazing that you're able to catch the hedgehogs -- I would think they'd be shy. But I'm glad you were there to "safely relocate" the family, despite the late hour!

    I had to grin at the video, I had no idea that Radio France is "feeling the Bern!" :-)
