Eye-to-eye at the zoo

Cogitation 23 Saturday 9 June 2018   This week, for the first time in almost three decades, I visited the Potawatomi Zoo in South Bend, Indiana.

The Zoo has more than 500 animals. It’s a thriving, expanding place. We were surrounded by a host of happy children on an end-of-school outing.

It has been a week where I’ve also been on my hands and knees weeding and mulching flower beds. Let photos tell some of the away from home stories of the week.

  1. A beautiful week in pictures! Enjoy your garden, weed-free for now and newly munched. Your bit of heaven…


    1. Thank you, Ginger. We’re enjoying being indoors at the moment. A cool dip would be nice, but so is the recliner and a book.
