The Farm at Walnut Creek
We had heard about the place from some of our friends. It sounded like a wonderful way to spend a day.
It is not your typical Amish farm...although one would never guess it at first sight. General farming goes on...hay making, planting gardens, etc.
It is only when you climb into the horse drawn wagon and begin an hour's ride that you believe you may have moved to a far away spot.
Fallow Deer from Australia and New Zealand were everywhere.
Aoudad from Algeria posed perfectly for the camera.
This Giraffe from Africa was more than happy to eat from our buckets of grain.
Afterwards we were free to tour walkways that showcased exotic birds from faraway places .
My favorite was the East African Crown Crane.
I am sure no movie star could be dressed as pretty as this proud one.
Well friends this is just a handful of the wonderful animals we got to see and touch. Thank you for letting me share these photos with you.
Hope everyone has a beautiful July.
P.S. Will be around to visit all of you soon. I've missed you!
Today I received a lovely unexpected gift in the mail. My friend Debra Smith at monniebeanfolkart.blogspot.com surprised me with this ...
We are so glad you stopped to visit. We've just been informed that these are the "Dog Days of Summer". Why would that be...
The garden in June is always a treat. Peonies unfold and dance in the breeze... Irises too! ...
