Gorgie City Farm

We visited Gorgie City Farm today to say hello to the animals. The visit started in bright sunshine

but became wet and dull later on. Driftwood and Sugar took a break from chasing each other round the rabbitry to say hello, watched by Ebony who is still in a separate cage

the other rabbits meanwhile were sitting quietly in the shed. Fudge the Jersey calf seems to have made friends with the cow sculpture, donated from the 2006 Edinburgh Cow Parade:

while the doves pecked small stones for their crops, to help their digestion:

We spent a while searching for Dexter, the Farm Cat but couldn't find him.

Is that a piece of driftwood in Driftwood's enclosure?

The cornflowers there really put ours to shame - ours are still budding yet. Always enjoy your photos Juliet.

Your photos are just enchanting me -- I really enjoyed this post. Hope you have a lovely time at the sea. (And thanks for stopping by -- I'm belatedly catching up!)

It seems strange to think of farming rabbits, they are a pest here. For years pet rabbits weren't allowed, but now certain species are permissible as pets (my daughter has a mini lop)
