Finally, the last book in the hedgehog trilogy will be available on Amazon by Monday 11th November, which just happens to be Baarbaara’s 102’nd birthday.
Summer is here, the weather is warm,
fourteen baby hedgehogs, have just been born.
Itchee & Harriet gave birth today,
A celebration of life is on its way.
Two little nests made from
Sheeps’ wool & leaves,
With fourteen soft skinned babies
enjoying the breeze.
Their prickles will develop later in the day,
Then harden into proper spikes to keep them from prey.
Tiny feet complete with claws,
Little milk teeth
and very strong jaws.
In a few weeks they’ll go
hunting with their Mums,
foraging slugs and worms on their nightly runs.
This is what the baby hedgehogs look like after just three weeks……
