Bookends.


I went out to investigate the sound of plates banging on the concrete at the back door, to find these two delightful hedgehogs cleaning up the boys dinner plates.

Our Progeny wants to know if they're "pets" in the same manner as Alfie & Boyd ................. ;-)

Haha, not quite the same as Boyd + Alfie, you sure can't pick them up and give them a cuddle! We don't like wasting food, so between the magpies and the hedgehogs eating the left overs, it makes every one happy :)

The boys had guests over for dinner. Did they ever try any mischief with the spiky visitors. I'm sure they won't instinctively know they're prickly.

They learnt at a very young age, that these little critters are not to be messed with. It was quite entertaining watching them, the boys didn't even end up with a blood nose.
