Yesterday we made our first trip of the season out to Henry's Plant Farm. It's a rite of spring around here. For the great plants AND the opportunity to see Lucy and Ethel.
That's the names I gave them anyway. I loved watching the kids walk up to them nervously. They all (without exception) said "hi" to them before they attempted any petting. I think it's the universal, "I mean you no harm", greeting. Heck. I said it myself.
There were also alpaca, geese, donkeys, and a teeny pony.
But Lucy and Ethel. They were the stars. From head to toe.
When we were leaving someone had their eye on me. Someone up in the meadow. Someone I am going to need to talk to next time.
I don't want to be a ridiculous city girl who needs to pet and hug cute animals but I can't help myself.
