A hedgehog house

We got a hedgehog house for our garden. I hope a hedgehog finds it suitable and moves in. I think it looks very inviting. That old pot next to it has been dragged with us all over the world, from city to city and country to country. I think we got it in Christchurch.


My war with the slugs and snails continues. I haven’t lost any of my new seedlings so far but I do put a lid over this compartment each night.


I planted a sweet pea in an old bicycle basket a couple of months ago and put it in the glasshouse. It’s grown a bit out of control but there aren’t as many flowers on it as I’d hoped; maybe it hasn’t reached its peak yet. I love reusing old baskets and containers as flower pots.

  1. Hedgehogs don’t live in the wild here; I find it so cute and amazing that you’re likely to have one just move in with you!

    1. You’ve got bears and lots of other things though, right? There are not very many animals here, not like Australia. The absence of wildlife outside seems quite strange to me. I’m used to so many other animals around – bush turkeys, possums, kookaburras, cockatoos, snakes, flying foxes, koalas, kangaroos, wombats, and lots more.
