Bow Street Flowers

Allendale farm is a working farm in Jamaica Plain:  in the city of Boston.  I've gone there for years to buy their own produce, plants and bunches of Cosmos when they aren't showing up in the Flower Market.

They give Hay Rides in the Fall.  It's the only time one can actually see the whole farm which is bordered by Chestnut Hill and Brookline.  A drive down Allendale Road is like a lovely fiction of rural life that lasts for about a delicious minute before one hits the backed up traffic of commuters making their way home from work.

The farm's vision has been pretty tame.  Vegetables, chickens, a nursery and a small specialty grocery.

Imagine my surprise when I saw these guys grazing one day last Spring.

What the heck are they?

Two Long Horn steer.  In Boston.  Not in the zoo.  Grazing peacefully right along Allendale Road.

I think the farm needs a few donkeys.

Here is Opal grazing with the sheep.  Her face is covered with flies.  I found a tank top in the car, soaked it with water and managed to remove a big goober from her right eye.  This is where the flies like to drink.  I tried to solve the problem with a wet rag.  She had other ideas.

Happy Fourth of July everyone.
