This was a fun little community thing that happened right at the end of May. A community project called the Grangetown Art Trail began posting pictures of people preparing their windows for the Grangetown Zoo for people to visit over the weekend. This is a bit like the rainbows project that I've blogged about previously.
We decided to join in. I say "we", but Cathy is the creative one. She made these wonderful bears to sit in our window. Everyone, meet Arthur and Ursula.
Cathy also made them a little, Welsh-speaking, friend.
We went out for a couple of walks over the weekend and found some more "exhibits". Sorry for the quality of the photography, but you know how it is trying to photograph animals...
We saw lemurs in Earl Street (behind a very clean, very reflective window!)
They were all named after Harry Potter characters.
We saw tigers in Holmesdale Street
And nearby there was a flamingo
There was a very tall giraffe in an upstairs window in Paget Street
And a monkey who had fallen out of a tree. We helped him back into a hedge.
There was a variety of fauna on display in Virgil Street
The parrot was bright and colourful, with beady eyes
They had a majestic, yet approachable looking lion as well
And then in Warwick Street we found the aquatic exhibit
The main resident of which was this handsome knitted octopus
