The mystery of the disappearing hedgehogs

Posted: 22/10/2014 at 08:38

Our regular big hog is still visiting most evenings - but he's always been late to start hibernation - he builds his hibernaculum mainly from fallen ash leaves from our big trees, and they always hang onto their leaves until quite late so I wonder if that's something to do with it?

DD - hope all goes well for son this morning - I'm sure it will ((hugs)).  They discovered my daughter had a heart murmur when she was a child - they said she may have had it all the time or it may have developed - they said it was 'innocent' and nothing needed to be done - nothing has been done and she's all grown up and married etc, and she's fine.

I think it depends on whether we're talking about those tiny little roses one can buy in pots/baskets which are so small they can sit on a windowsill, or whether we're talking about a patio rose - which are varieties of rose  with compact growth which are sold with the advice that they do well in containers on patios etc.  e.g. http://www.primrose.co.uk/-p-66005.html?adtype=pla&kwd=&gclid=CPPXv6vNv8ECFbHHtAod3UoABw

They're really quite different.

Good morning all

Great photos Chicky - glad you had a good time.

I was sure that I'd posted to tell you OH got back from his bike trip to the shops and that we'd had home made soup for lunch and several other posts, but they seem to have been blown away ..........

Good luck!  I have some growing in my compost heap - you're not by any chance up the road at the University of East Anglia are you?  If so I could pot one or two up for you

Alan, look at the title of your thread!  Maybe you've been the victim of some strange sort of auto-correct gone wrong

Hope your hatches are well battened down and you're not getting blown off that Mundesley cliff!

I was the same age as many of the children lost and I had cousins my age living in S. Wales  - I remember hearing about it  - it was the first time that the television news was really relevant to me.

A horrific tragedy.
