I was taking advantage of the early spring the other day to get a bit of shrub transplanting done, when I came across a mound of moss, leaves etc I left it alone in case it was a little house and went back to look yesterday and saw a little flower trying to appear out the side. Thinking it might be a rare orchid I gently lifted a few wee bits and pieces and established that it was in fact a crocus - slightly mis-shapen but a pretty little crocus nevertheless. Then I wondered if the mound was just that, a mound of leaves, moss etc so without disturbing it I tried to have a good look and I am sure it is a hedgehog or animal nest and I am so touched that it is in my garden and impressed by the workmanship involved. I am surprised though because I saw a hedgehog in January and remember thinking at the time that it should be hibernating. Anyway just thought I'd share that with you.
