The hedgehogs are back!

It's been a long time since I last saw these spikey little chaps wandering around the garden, munching on slugs and nicking cat food.
 I decided it was about time to remove my home-made "hog box" and plant something in it's place. On lifting the lid I was greeted with the sight of two plumpish looking pin cushions. Carefully placing the lid back on, I popped back inside for a brew safe in the knowledge that my torch-lit slug-hunting evenings could be put on hold once again.

I have not been able to get to your blog via blotanical for some reason. Thank you for the 'fan' too. I think hedgehogs are cute, but I am betting there is a difference of opinion on this one. Some think they are pests. They can come at slugs here, there are plenty of them!

You might want to go to www.feedburner.com and see if you can 'fix' your feed so we can Pick your posts on Blotanical.

I've never seen a hedgehog. We have armadillos, not nearly so desirable.

Lucky you! I have'nt seen a Hedgehog round our area in several years.

Try Dashboard, Settings, Other. You need to sort out your feed. Set up a Feedburner Feed. For Blotanical yes, so you can get full benefit from any readers there. But also for all your readers, who you hope will subscribe to your feed, and read each post as you write it.

Blogging is a steep learning curve at the beginning, but that can be part of the challenge/fun of learning something new.

We would LIKE to be able to pick your hedgehog post on Blotanical!
