🧡🎙🧡 NEWS – The Plant of Hope and Renewal
I hope you’ve been checking out the Prickly Hedge page this week and the website as I’ve been more active in getting content out there. If you’ve watched my live video, you’ll understand why I’ve not been on the radar as much for the last 12 months or so. If not, you can check it out HERE
I don’t know about you, but I seem to be playing catch-up everywhere at the moment, I seem to be behind in everything I’m doing. I have soo much to do, I don’t know where the time goes lol. If you’re not so fortunate or live alone, then please do come and check out the page and perhaps learn more about the natural environment and how you can help #teambubble in their quest to save the planet. If we can get out into nature or our gardens, it certainly does lift the spirits.
Talking about saving the planet, we are starting a new group on Facebook, it will primarily be for caregivers of children who want to help their kids engage more with the natural world and showing ways in which we can achieve that. There will be lives, discussions and interviews with eco-warriors who are doing their own thing looking out for what they believe in. Look out for it in February.
Searching around Youtube, I discovered a series on plant meanings, which I found fascinating. Today, Monday and this month, January, is symbolic of our beautiful, and much revered, snowdrop. Your task this week is to find a snowdrop or a crop of snowdrops, take a photo and drop it on our Facebook page @PricklyHedge

If you do see Yew Trees on your walks out, please DO NOT touch them, every part of the plant is poisonous from the foliage to the wood. They are gorgeous to look at; we have two here at Prickly Hedge and they feed the birds who are able to process the alkaloids that the tree contains but they are definitely poisonous to humans. You tend to find them in hedging or graveyards, but, beautiful as they are, keep your little ones (and big ones) away from them.
I hope you have a fabulous week doing whatever you are able to at the moment, come and engage with us and let us know what you’re up to in looking after our planet.
With lots of love from Prickly Hedge and #TeamBubble xx
