It’s a tiny bit over due, but we went to the zoo a couple of weeks a go. I did mention it a blog post here already, but what I haven’t yet mentioned was how impressed I was with the appearance of the zoo, especially the gardens. We visited Chester Zoo about six years ago but due to a horrible accident with my youngest, he fell off a bridge and we had to rush him to hospital with a gash in his head, I’ve not felt inclined to return. However on entering the zoo this time I was immediately impressed with the meadow style landscapes that appeared along the walk ways and between enclosures.
In other places the gardens resembled, to my very untrained eye, English cottage gardens with plants you might see blooming before a beautiful thatch. As we were lucky to visit in the sunshine, there were plenty of mini beasts buzzing around enjoying the flora.
And then there amongst the mini beasts, and the beautiful gardens are the gigantic beasts, huge mechanical moving versions of all the bugs our children love, a special exhibition current installed. Oh and of course we saw some beautiful real animals too. So here we go, share in our day out..
How cute is this little fella..
