We had a vote on Friday and it was decided that today would be the Lost Gardens. What will be there we wondered? Crickets? Strawberries? A parrot? Carrots? A parachute? A bean? A rabbit? Birdies? A playground? were suggested.
So this morning off we went after signing in at the farm and a mat-time to go over the rules - No climbing on fences and gates, No chasing animals and No running away. Everyone remembered really well.
But "where are the gardens" said one "they are not here that must be why they are lost".
The Lost Gardens are a fabulous place to explore rocks and little hollows, and spend time getting up high "I can see the whole farm" they cried out from the top.
This whole experience at the farm is so valuable for city kids - wide open spaces, views of green fields ( and our mountain in the distance) and adults who join in if the children want but also let children explore without having to be right alongside.
