Yesterday we prepared for St. Patrick’s Day at Powisset Farm in Dover with performances in the barn by the Whyte School of Irish Step Dancing and fiddle tunes in the Cape Breton style by Claire Pettit of the band The Cottars. It was a lovely setting, especially since the seats were set up in the kitchen where a cat rested on top of the oven. After the show, we strolled around the meadows, the hayfields, and vernal pools.
On Saturday we went to the Franklin Park Zoo to celebrate lion brothers Dinari and Kamaia’s seventh birthday. We missed the cake, but we saw the lions lounging in the sun. We also saw the newborn Nigerian Dwarf Goat, Chewbacca, and the dramatic flapping wings of a flying condor.
Dinari and Kamaia are very restful on their birthday.
