A Weekend in pictures – June 4th/5th 2016

What an eventful and hot early summer weekend! Actually our weekend started at the local zoo – where we met this handsome fella.

I’m not necessarily a peacock-loving person – the peacock, however, seemed to really like me…

Anyhow, fortunately we also encountered my favorite birds: Sparrows!

We sure enjoyed our time at the zoo, but at the same time we gave this whole imprisoning-exotic-animals-in-order-to-preserve-the-animals-we-are-killing-in-other-parts-of-the-world-due-to-pollution-thing a lot of thought. I always get kind of sad at the zoo – and it always makes me so pensive. I think I’m going to share my thoughts on that topic with you in a special post some time this week.

These baby chicks seem to be imprisoned, too – but really they are not. We met them at a small farm that we also visited this week. And they had lots of baby chicks…

We spent so much time outside that our Baby was able to take her nap in the middle of trees, laying hens and baby chicks.

We also picked peppermint and elderflowers. The peppermint is going to get dried…

… the elderflowers are going to be our favorite jelly this summer!

But what would I be without my precious big helper around the house?
