So the heat continues , with a whole afternoon of biblical thunder followed by 10 minutes of hail and 10 minutes of deluge . Sat and looked out the window on my birthday and today we have been together 16 years and are hoping to go out for an icecream .
So heres my wildlife post for you , water your hedgehogs folks they are struggling , they need lots of shallow water and plenty of cat kibble in this weather . If you see them in the daytime they are in difficulties and a cardboard box in the shade with a saucer of cat food is the way to go , just release them at dusk . We have a pair of sex maniacs grunting under the living room window every evening at the moment plus im not sure how many tiny babies are coming for food and water , i did have one actually swimming and rolling round in the water dish the other night . Snakes need water as well so dont panic if you see them , they have no interest in you . They swim in the empty wheelbarrow sometimes, an empty wheelbarrow filled with water with a pile of bricks or stones at the shallow end makes an excellent temporary bird lido . plus the benefit of caring for your wildlife is you have a virtually slug and snail free garden .
It must be nearly school time as next door is slaughtering her kids , brings back memories...lol
