It's been very hot and very dry these past few weeks in Piopio. This past weekend John and I were having a late dinner at Struan Farm, looking out from our dining table to the front lawn and the Bowl. And what did we see, but a wee hedgehog motoring along in search of water.
Karen to the rescue, with instruction from John, who remembers putting out saucers of water and milk for thirsty hedgehogs as a child.
He drank up for quite some time, then decided not to stay for dessert, toddled off on his way.
