Lovely photos, Elaine. Can't believe you managed to photograph a mole!

Oh, I meant to say it was not deliberately! xx

Bliss! We were up out at 6.30am and met most of those obstacles for real en route to a car boot. (Btw I gave a link to your "Wundaweb" post to another blogger mystified by the strange webs.)

Too cute!

Brilliant! I commented previously on your 'wundaweb', saying I'd seen some locally, but I think Blogger was being silly at the time, so don't know if you got it -http://vintage-tea-time.blogspot.com/2011/05/strange-goins-on-in-edges.html Abby x

A beautiful part of the country indeed. The older I get the more I yearn for peace. Where we are in termed 'semi rural' more semi than rural unfortunately.

I don't know how you manage to get anywhere!
Our verge trimmer does hedges too...and has timed his trotting so he can have a picnic on the hoof & reduce the cow parsley to neater proportions.

That's why I wish I lived in Dorset!

I discovered your lovely blogsite through Elegancemaison posting a comment Cro's 'Magnum's Meanderings' regarding ermine caterpillars and all the scary stuff appearing on hedges lately! I love your pictures - it looks home from home for where I live in Mid Wales.

Wonderful pictures. Am in awe that you captured a mole. I haven't seen a hedgehog (either dead on road, or alive) for years and then last night just before midnight I opened the door to try and coax the cat in and there was the biggest, fattest hedgehog ever, just stood there looking at me. Great to know all these creatures are out there........

I am so envious of your mole photo, what a great shot and quite unusual to find on overground. :)

I enjoyed this post, Elaine, lovely !
Many problems with Blogger lately, first I wasn't able to give comments, after 2 days I installed the Mozilla Firefox browser, no problems there, but suddenly my followers list was gone :-(
Hope everything stays okay now !
Hugs,
Sylvia

Oh my gosh, Elaine! That is so cleverly written and photographed!
We just lost our final old old Kitty, Miss Indy last Thursday..had to have the Vet put her to sleep. She went down hill after Kitton died even though she used to 'body slam' Kitton for no reason..Indy was the alpha cat, but I think she misssed the body slams. Anyway it took her about 1yr and a half but she finally had to give it up and I can't believe her Daddy is still standing! He said he'd been with that cat longer than his ex-wife or me!

Miss Mary Elliott said...

LOL!!! we have a traffic warden in our garden also :) don't want to get in his way! xx

Vintage Jane said...

Made me chuckle! I have never in my life seen a real life mole!

Loretta said...

I'm still smiling...love your quip, and the pics are wonderful! Thanks for sharing. Hug!
