from Sheila 12.10.13 This mouse moved in to the garden when the wheat field behind us was cut. She will stay in the garden till next Spring. I will need to keep an eye on my tulip bulbs. Mice seem to find them a sweet treat.

Have you ever seen a baby hedgehog? Seen in a friends garden.

He told me this story

Fable of the Hedgehog

It was the coldest winter ever.  Many animals died because of the cold.
The Hedgehogs, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm.
This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.
After a while, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen.So they had to make a choice; either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.
Wisely, they decided to go back to being together.They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from the others.  This way they were able to survive.
The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect  people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person's good qualities.
Just learn to live with the pricks in your life!

I don't know how these mice ended up in the compost bin. Sheila
