Pagan Eye: A Pair of Hedgehogs

I'm rather jealous of my friend Chris Boote, who has this pair of hedgehogs living in his west London garden. Although I used to frequently see hedgehogs in my garden in south London when I was a child, I haven't spotted one for years.

Considering hedgehogs do an excellent job of getting rid of slugs, I really wish one would come and visit me.

According to superstition, seeing a hedgehog walking towards you is supposed to be good luck, unless it comes into your home, in which case it is supposed to indicate bad fortune. Mind you, as hedgehogs are notoriously flea-ridden, I suspect it could be unpleasant to find a spiny little fellow curled up on the soft furnishings.

On each Pagan Eye post, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it - it could be a seasonal image, a pagan site, an event, or just a pretty picture. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch's Blog.
