Be careful on garden cleanup!

Hi list,

It's a brilliant, sunny spring day here in southern Germany, reaching 
20°C, so I decided to do some garden cleanup: some weeding, some cutting 
back... so I decided to get rid of the dead leaves on my Kniphofia which 
is nested on a south-facing wall. Luckily I was'n too agressive, because 
all of the sudden I found a slowly breathing ball of spines below the 
Kniphofia leaves and some other foliage. I hope I didn't disturb the 
little fellow too much - it's time to rise up from hibernation anyway. 
Never let anybody tell you that exotic plants are of no benefit to local 
fauna - and never forget that you're not the only one who calls your 
garden home.

Greetings from Germany, where we're in the midst of floral spring 
explosion with lots of Scillas, Narcissus, early Fritillaries and so 
much more!
