A wee break from the norm.....






Hard to believe that it's just five months since this wee man arrived, it feels as if he has always been a fixture. Mind you don't let that cuteness fool you he can at times be anything but cuddly. Just ask the birds that inhabit the garden. It's his soul ambition in life to keep them slim and fit by chasing them from the bird station. I do think the house sparrows take a pure rise out of him though by sitting just out of reach. And off course he has become quite mesmerised by  hedgehogs that have moved in. Have to say I'm delighted to have them back in my garden after many years without them. We always had them in the garden when I was younger but not for a long time. I think the previous fence which was solid made it impossible for them to get in. The new fence it would appear is hedgehog friendly :) This was a local holiday weekend and although being self employed and holidays often become just another day I decided  to observe the long weekend. We didn't go anywhere it was just a little down time from the normal. Mostly spent in the garden which is starting to show signs of needing it's winter rest. Cut the grass, probably for the last time till next Spring as rain is being forecast and it just turns into mud after that. The berberis which was well over 6ft got a rather severe haircut and I have the cuts, scratches and skelfs to prove it didn't give in without a fight lol. I have to say I've been feeling a little jaded lately and this weekend amongst the plants and nature has lifted my spirits...can't ask for more than that...smile!

280boaltutIt is such a regal looking dog. Sweet and yet really tough when he has to be. Hedgehogs would be wonderful to have. Not in our country though.
