Cherry Hill Gate

To see most of the Royal Botanical Gardens that are close to where I live you have to pay an entrance fee, but there is one area that is still free. This area is quite wooded with some marshes and nice walking paths. The best part though is the abundance of birds — especially the ones that will land on your hand. I get really excited every time one comes to me and picks some seeds right out of my hand. These birds are well fed because there are always people walking the paths carrying a bag or container of birdseed. A couple of weeks ago I finally went to this part of  the RBG called Cherry Hill Gate  — I had been wanting to go all Summer, but something always seemed to get in the way. I am sure that I just blinked and summer just came and went when I wasn’t looking. I took some pretty cool pictures during  my walk  that I hope you will enjoy.

Did you enjoy your walk with me? What was your favorite part? We will have to go for another walk someday–maybe in the winter to see the changes that the snow makes. I wonder if the birds still come out to be fed during the winter — I guess we will have to take that walk and find out.

    I take my children down there frequently….the redwings will feed off your hands too!! A little ‘secret’….during the winter, one of the best times to go down and feed the birds there is RIGHT BEFORE a storm is coming in. The birds flock to you….the kids LOVE it!!

    What lovely pictures! I like that squirrel scooting into the distance! And the chickadee (I think that’s what you call them, over here it would be a tit) eating from your hand is beautiful. Snow White would’ve liked to come along and see those ducks! I wish I had taken my camera out on our walk yesterday. I was convinced it was so dark and grey that there was no point but then of course I saw the most gorgeous big red toadstool. I bet it won’t be as good if I go back today. Never mind!
