When I was a new mom of a sweet baby girl — and we lived in England — I had one of those new mom clothing obsessions. I went all in on hedgehog inspired baby goods. Adorable and seemingly so European (I told myself)….I loved the cute details that these small garden rodents brought to dresses, tights, hats…whatever.
So, last week when Roanne told me that you could adopt a hedgehog here in the US, I was instantly intrigued. Now the last thing this family needs is another pet, but if I could infest my garden with these critters, I would soooo be tempted to throw aside all highly questionable ecological species introducing warnings and cultivate these charming garden guests. Good thing they won’t survive the wild here so I’m not tempted with such insane ideas….but I’m nonetheless happy to know that should I need a hedgehog fix….it’s not too hard to come by.
