Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Wellwood Orchard Petting Zoo

We spent a long weekend in New Hampshire to babysit the granddaughter so Emily & Matt could have a get away.  We had a lovely time.  Our one outing with granddaughter was a return to Wellwood Orchard and its petting zoo.














Granddaughter contemplating the calf.



This chicken looked like it was crossed with a pigeon.








When we told granddaughter where we were taking her she told us there would be peacocks and they would squawk.


The peacocks were amazingly quiet.  It was the roosters that couldn't stop cock a doodle doing.





This red and black bird was a pheasant we were told.







The goats were the boldest.


Once leaving the enclosure there are sinks for washing hands and brushes for cleaning shoe soles, a necessary task.

What a neat place for kids. I'm sure your granddaughter had a good time....

You asked me which Hosta you had given me. It was the green/white one (my favorite) which I showed as a close-up.... Love that --and always think of you when I see it...

Hugs,
Betsy

Your granddaughter is absolutely adorable. She looks like a little doll. I just know my grandchildren would love a zoo like that too.
