Have just been having a cup of tea and reading some of my friend's blogs, and came upon a post from Kirsty at Kirsty's Cottage Industries which has inspired me to write something... about moles!
I love moles, always have. Think they are such curious, lovely little creatures. And when I was a little girl I used to collect them - little toys, pictures, ornaments and things. Anyway, imagine my delight when Moulin Roty introduced two new members of La Grande Famille this year - and one of them is a mole! You can see her in the picture - she is called Apolline and is wearing a pretty dress. I love her big paws!
Before I go, here is a Beatrix Potter poem about moles - 34 years old and I still know it off by heart!

Little old man in black velvet
He digs and he delves
You can see for yourselves
