Have been humming that old Simon and Garfunkel tune all morning!
While the weather is still wonderful, we traveled to the Beardsley Zoo yesterday with our grands. It was a most excellent adventure!
Although I have seen prairie dogs on television and in photos. I was unprepared for how cute...and friendly...they are in person!
They are very affectionate with each other and seem to enjoy being talked to and are very inquisitive. Although they are not unusual in other parts of the USA, they really are quite a sight here in New England.
On the back side of this outdoor display there is a tunnel with viewing tubes that place the viewer nose to nose with the curious little animals.
There were a few other animals I fell in love with, too...I will share more of them in another post.
In the mean time, I am heading outdoors to trim the bittersweet that grows on our picket fence. It is covered with berries that will eventually be red and orange and the birds will love!
enjoy the day!
