Good morning from a chilly sunny Hastings. I am late today as I was outside for some time taking photos of a bright red sunrise.
I feel rather guilty over my photos today for Cee’s challenge over at Cee’s Photography which is to showcase our cream to light brown photos.
Yesterday I decided to clean up my craft room. Next week I have an inspection by my landlord so I have to make sure everything is clean as a whistle. Not really my favourite job. Don’t get me wrong – I do like a clean room. But I have been putting it off over the winter as it is just too cold down that end of the house. This meant it was just a room for going in quickly and dumping something. So I got rid of a lot of stuff and vacuumed it etc.
Well I need to have a break now and then. In other words a coffee and peek out the window to see what is happening and have my camera handy. On one break I found this hedgehog walking down the middle of the road. Of course I grabbed my camera and headed outside. It was very wobbly on it’s feet (at least that is what I have been telling myself this morning)
So, feeling very brave I picked it up and brought it over to our lawn.
There it stayed. It made a few feeble attempts to move but never got far. It could barely lift it’s head. It also lost some of it’s prickles or whatever they are called. I was starting to get a bit worried.
Even this sparrow was nosy and wanted to check out what was going on.
So last night I kept checking on it and it hadn’t moved from where I had placed it.
Then this morning I went out and checked it and found it was dead. So now you know why I feel so guilty. My son has called me a murderer (joking of course),by shooting it with my camera. I have been comforting myself by saying it died peacefully, not squashed on the road. Now we have to give it a funeral.
This is also for Marilyn’s challenge over at SERENDIPITY.
Thanks for visiting.
